seller note Medical antiques fine pair of Victorian silver ear tubes Circa 1880 hearing aids.
Measurements: 2.5 cms long by 1.5 cms
Weight: 5.4 gram joint weight
Hallmarks: there are no hallmarks but these have been acid proof tested to prove their silver content.
Tubes were placed in either ear to aid hearing and effectively acted as stents to keep the ear canal open.
comment These are an unusual shape - quite rare.
I think probably made as a one off because they have no marks.
