A hard to find example of the “beehive” ear trumpet dating to 1880. The silver plated hearing device has a lovely patina and an ornate and attractive art nouveau style grille.
It has been well used and there are several small dents shown in the photographs which are of minor significance. Overall the condition is very good. Signed by Franck-Valery 9 Rue Richepanse. 9. Paris.
