The Flower Vase, manufactured by F.C. Rein, London, about 1800, is an early model of a multiple sound receptor hearing device and was designed to be used as an ornate centerpiece for flowers or fruit. Each of the six openings "receptors" acted as sound collectors with the sound conveyed by a tube hidden under a table runner or napkin to the user's ear. This hearing device is from the Central Institute for the Deaf - Max A. Goldstein Historic Devices for Hearing Collection at Washington University Bernard Becker Medical Library in St. Louis, Missouri.
