Auricles

Celluloid Auricles 2

These auricles are the middle size of the celluloid auricles in the museum. They are unmarked, and possibly date from somewhere around 1890..

They are made of celluloid and have a brownish amber color. Their overall folded length is 4” giving a full tube length of about 8”. They give a significant boost in high frequencies improving speech intelligibility. These auricles have a metal headband.

They were purchased from Holland.
