Ear Trumpets (Ear Horns)

Celluloid Beehive Ear Trumpet (Ear Horn)

This is another variation on the London Dome reflecting style of ear trumpet. It is made of celluloid "Faux Tortoiseshell" and is possibly of French manufacture.

This ear trumpet measures 2⅜" across the bell. The dome itself is 4˝" high, while the height to the top of the ear piece is 4˝".

Date of manufacture is unknown, but it is most likely somewhere around 1900 because of the ivory ear tip.
