Description

A good example of the Meyrowitz Otophone in its labeled box with leather-covered diaphragm protector. This device came in three sizes: A,B,C. This is the B size and measures 6 cm across the bell , 5.5 cm across the earpiece and 7.5 cm in length. Since it has been kept in the box it retains its original black color: when exposed to air the vulcanite (or hard rubber) of which it was made tended to  take on a tan color. To use  one held the earphone flat against the ear with bell facing outward.
