A good examples of a scarce Phonophore sthethoscope made c1920 by a Manchester firm (UK). It is very similar to the one Blaufox shows in FigA53 of his stethoscope book and like that example has long and thick rubber tubing. Overall condtion is quite good noting some minor cracking of tubing near mountings and small loss of plating on bell.
