Blue Glass Ear Trumpet

Here are some clues that indicate this beautiful blue glass "ear trumpet" is not a genuine ear trumpet.

 

 

  1. Notice the supposed ear piece. This end is flared outómuch too big to go into a person's ear canal. In reality, it is similar to a bugle mouthpiece.















     
  2. The "ear piece" is straight. Genuine ear trumpets have curved ear pieces so the end can go into your ear canal and yet the bell of the trumpet still faces forward. You could not do that with this "ear trumpet". This "ear trumpet" would be sticking straight out from your head.

     

 

Conclusion: This is not a genuine ear trumpet at all, but likely a tiny decorative bugle. The purchaser got taken if he thought he was getting a real hearing aid.
