|seller note||Silver Gilt Miniature Ear Tubes by Maw of London.
A fine pair of 19th century unmarked silver gilt miniature ear tubes by Maw of London, in their original velvet lined box.
These were placed in the ear canal to facilitate hearing probably in those with narrowing or blockage of the external auditory meatus.
|comment||I have not seen these in silver gilt and a labelled box is a bonus. Not interested in boxes but it gives me a brand.|
