Case: 27cm




Fumouze & Cie, Paris

Country of manufacture


Categories: Medicine, Diagnostics


We are offering an example of Glover’s Téléstéthoscope Électrique, an early stethoscope that employed electricity and telephone technology. It is mechanically complete but lacks the battery, which ​was presumably removed because, not surprisingly after a 100 years, it was corroded and leaking​. Note low serial number on label that is affixed to front of case. A link to a contemporary article that discusses this instrument is provided below. Case is 27 cm in length. Maker is Fumouze et Cie, working in Paris.
