seller note A Victorian plated ear trumpet by F.C. Rein & Son, the bell and tube with foliate engraved decoration and pierced scroll grille, engraved inscription around side 'F.C Rein & Son Patentees, Sole Inventors & Only Makers, 30 Charing Cross Road, London', length 10.1cm (missing earpiece and plating worn).
comment Nice Rein dome of unusual shape.
Although bulkier I feel this may be the result of experimentation.
The foliate engraving is just lovely. Again the auctioneer got the date wrong, Victorian can't be 30 Charing X !!
