I have seen many of these over the years, This one is in nice shape, sold for a fair price. (but then I have not been watching the price on them for sometime)   This Co. did also make them for the E and F hand sets.

I have one for the C/S and an F hs.  Yes, no photos. :(

Its a cone of silence, before the shoe phone though. Looks like it absorbed outside noise/the spoken voice so the user can whisper or at least not be as noticeable when talking. Perfect for those turn of the century scandals. 8)

IF I remember correctly, the cone of silence never worked quite the way it was supposed to!
