Banjo Style Ear Trumpet in Early Celluloid

  2. Current Item

An attractive telescopic banjo style ear trumpet made from an early celluloid in faux tortoiseshell.

This two draw trumpet is delightfully asymmetrical courtesy of the thick seamed and very early celluloid having  had slight movement. These were typically made from metal and I have not seen a similar example.
