   This item is made of brass.  The bell end measures 13" x 9 7/8".  Height when standing on bell is 15".  Length is about 17".  The connector on the small end has a type of "quick connect" set-up.  It looks like it would fully engage with mating part with 1/4 turn.  I'm thinking maybe some kind of industrial hopper?

   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Stick little end in your ear, point large end at person who is speaking...brass ear trumpet.  Antique hearing aid.  Value is around $200-250. USD.  Here's a few to look at:  https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=brass++ear+trumpet+-&ei=U...

Found this German made ear trumpet that looks like yours. Made around 1900. Dimensions can be checked to make that determination.  http://www.hearingaidmuseum.com/gallery/Non-Electric/EarTrumpets/Lo...

The threaded connector on the small end makes me disagree.  However I do appreciate your response.

What does your "threaded connector" look like?  a pic would help. I figured the white thing on the end was a protective cap to keep the "in the ear" end sanitary.  Guess not.

Sure looks like the one in the link; close to same size too.

Maybe somebody else can figure it out.

It's a horn from an old victrola (early record player).
