This seldom found ear trumpet is called a “Bonnafont Trumpet”.  It has three, 3, bends from bell to ear and often times called a Bonnafont or Bugle.  The instrument looked like a Bugle and thought the design would enhance the sound.  It is missing ear piece, but an old stethoscope ear piece might fit.  Instrument certainly added accent and made this style unique.  Most of these were made in England from the middle 1800s to early 1900s.  It measures 6.50” high and bell is 3.5” in diameter.  It is made of metal painted black.  It is pictured and described in the Bennion book “Antique Hearing Devices”.  Bonnafont style ear trumpets are rare and seldom found and will highlight any collection of antique ear trumpets.
