Here's a different version of the very popular "Paula's Rapture" kaleidoscope. This version features an iridescent interior image due to the inclusion of dichroic glass on one side, a very special mirror system aptly named "Northern Lights". The kaleidoscope itself is a 2-mirror, 7-point style, is made to represent the quilting works of Paula Nadelstern, the preeminent kaleidoscope quilter. The object cell is an oil cell, filled with tiny pieces of dichroic and flame-worked glass. The images inspire rapturous reactions. A unique and magnificent gift for someone special.
It measures 9-1/2" long x 2" diameter, and stands approximately 3-3/4" tall when sitting on its own suede-lined walnut stand.
