Large 6.3" Long Brass Double Wheel Kaleidoscope in a Wood Box
This Brass hand made Kaleidoscope has two coloured wheels positioned opposite the set of mirrors, and by turning the wheels infinite new reflective images are created. The wheels can be moved to find specific shapes and colours.
Made from polished brass, high grade optical mirrors, natural stones and coloured crystal glass beads.
The last picture shows the view from the inside of the kaleidoscope.
Kaleidoscopes look a little bit like a small telescope that you can hold in your hands. One end has a hole you can look into. The other end has translucent paper or other material that lets light in. Inside the kaleidoscope, there are mirrors arranged in a circle, as well as a variety of colourful objects, like beads, pebbles or small pieces of glass, that are free to move around. As you look through the viewer and rotate the outside of the kaleidoscope, the mirrors reflect the movement of the small objects to create fascinating visual images that change with each movement.
