A small 19th century French conical brass ear trumpet with a high gloss black japanned finished. This was a very durable glaze like covering designed to protect the trumpet.

The appearance of the earpiece is typical of the French style. The painted surface of the fixed ear piece has worn away and the underlying material could be Bakelite but it does seem to have a grain and could even be wood.
