Gorgeous Vintage Ear Trumpets

One could lose hours gazing at the various fantastic collections of vintage medical equipments at one of my favorite websites: Phisick Medical Antiques.

We've featured the website before (in one of few first What is it? games, actually), but I just have to share with you their neat collection of ear trumpets and horns.

The one to the left is the Grand Opera Dome Ear Trumpet by Rein, an ornately detailed 19th century silver plated ear trumpet. The Queen Conch shell was said to be the musical instruments of mermaids, though it's not clear whether the piece was functional or just meant to be a conversation piece!
