An early 20th century ear trumpet in a rare beehive configuration made from celluloid in excellent condition.
There is a join near the apex of the ear horn (see pictures) which would have been part of the manufacturing process. The removable ear piece is made from and early plastic and has a tight thread. The decorative deco style grille is lined with a brass mesh to prevent anything passing into the inside of the trumpet. A very fetching and collectible piece.
