Stethoscope, wood / bakelite, Finnish military hospital
Original Finnish "stethoscopes", made of wood or bakelite.
Most likely manufactured in Finland. The material suggests the shortage era, when clever solutions were made when all materials were on short list.
Used, possibly thousands of times, some scratches may be visible on surfaces, very good condition, some have no visible wear, there are mixed wood / bakelite version and 100% wooden ones, all are painted black. We got these from the medical supplu depot auction, so these are possibly army issued.
Most are breakable in two pieces for carry in doctors bag.
Length: approx 20cm
Disk diameter 5-8cm
Very good hearing aid, when eavesdropping neighbours.
