A charming antique telescopic ear trumpet made from concentric sections of brass plated tin.

In its collapsed state it fits easily in the hand, reaching 20 cm when fully extended. This is a fine example of the 19th century telescopic ear trumpet shown in figure 230 of the George Tiemann & Co Surgical Instruments catalogue of 1879.
