Ear Trumpet

A bugle shaped tin ear trumpet with neatly soldered convoluted tube. The horn is 6" long, with a 3 3/4" mouth. Perhaps displaced by the popular "London" ear horns, this early horn disappeared from the catalogs in the late 19th century. The heavy tin horn with its 5 soldered joints is in solid condition, except for a 1/2" crack at the edge of the mouth. The black enamel finish has been almost totally scratched off. The original gold paint on the interior of the horn is 80% present.
