Here at Cape Kaleidoscope, we like to say that little kaleidoscopes are "portable Zen." This Mini Puzzle Kaleidoscope on a wooden base has several interesting features. It features Ron's signature dark brass patina to resemble an antiqued finish popularized by the Victorian, "steam punk" genre.
Its two independently turning wheels are artfully shaped to resemble puzzle pieces. The wheel that's closest to your eye produces the foreground of the mandalas (or interior images), whereas the other wheel produces the background. Each wheel consists of many bright colors of colored crystal glass beads. The imagery created from this kaleidoscope's 2-mirror system results in combinations of vivid patterns that are almost endless, and sure to be a hit with anyone on your gift list.
The kaleidoscope itself measures 2-1/2" long x 7/8" in diameter (at the wheels). This memorable kaleidoscope sits on its custom wooden base. It's perfectly affordable, and gender-neutral, and will fit nicely on a desk or table where someone might not have much "real estate" left!
