The Bristol 'Auditorium True-Tone' was first introduced on the market in 1925 by Pountney & Co. and the regular appearance of these was plain slip-cast black earthenware using the Alkalite material. This substance claimed to enhance the sound of any audible-wave frequancy travelling through the horn.
This example may have been made to order or as a full-frequency range demonstration, as the body is larger by almost 50 than known examples.
