Vintage Doctor Quack Hearing Aid Device

I'm not sure if this item is a quack item or not. It's definately vintage, probably 40's or 50's. I can remember my grandmother had a friend who was hard of hearing and she had something very similar to this. I was very little in the early 50's but I can remember singing songs to the old woman and she seemed to be able to hear better if we used this instrument. You just talk (or sing!) into the large end and the hard of hearing person sticks the other end into their ear! It measures about 42" long when it's stretched out long. The middle section is covered in some sort of a mesh material. Not sure what is underneath the mesh. Both ends are plastic or bakelite. Could use a cleaning but is in fairly good, used, vintage condition otherwise.
