Horn loudspeaker
Slim copper horn with a brass and wood base.
Dr. Eugen Nesper (1879-1961) was a well known German radio pioneer, who wrote books and articles and published magazines about radio.
The brand name "Dr Nesper" was used for a number of items, including head sets and loudspeakers. It is quite certain that this loudspeaker was made by Telefon und Telegraphenbau AG W.A. Birgfeld, Prenzlauer Allee 55, Berlin. This company uses the same sinusoidal logo with concentric circles shown on the set screw of the speaker.
