Description
Ear trumpet and walking stick combined
A hearing trumpet is incorporated at the handle of this walking cane. This acts as an amplifier to direct the sound to the ear through a reversible earpiece worn in the ear. The walking stick could be rested on the shoulder of the user with the earpiece positioned in the ear. Other hearing devices designed for concealment were found in umbrellas, fans, chairs, table pieces, wigs and beards.
