This is a beautiful Japan-themed, glass oil-cell kaleidoscope with an equilateral 3-mirror system. The oil cylinder is filled with beads, glass, shells and metallic pieces, and finished with soldered metal end caps. Each of the three exterior sides is different (see photos), and would make a lovely addition to an Asian-themed home. This kaleidoscope measures 9" long x 4" wide x 1-1/2" tall.
If you don't see the "Add to Cart" button for the item you want below, please inquire about special ordering it. Keep in mind that they are all handcrafted, and naturally take more time to create than manufactured items.
Please be aware that when special ordering another one, the exact coloration and/or texture of exterior of this style may be slightly different than shown in this photo. Artists who work in glass typically start from very large sheets of glass whose colors, patterns, and/or textures often change and shift over the course of each sheet. Where the specific pieces of glass are cut on a sheet will determine what the final kaleidoscope will look like. Also, the artist may choose to adorn the finished kaleidoscope slightly differently each time in terms of decorative details, using their best artistic judgement.
Each time we receive new glass kaleidoscope styles into inventory, we photograph each one so we can feature the most current and accurate representation of the latest version here on this site.
