Ear Trumpets (Ear Horns)

Short Metal Ear Trumpet (Ear Horn)

Similar to the previous example, this trumpet is made of nickel-plated brass.

The parabolic shape reflects the sound into the ear tube.

This ear trumpet measures 3¼" across the bell. The dome itself is 3½" high, while the height to the top of the ear piece is 5½".

 It has an ivory ear tip dating it to somewhere around 1890. The manufacturer is unknown.
