Product Description

Small Floret Shell Brass is an exciting handheld newcomer to the Chesnik Scopes family, boasting a 6-point 3-mirror system. It has two interchangeable and independently turning wheels. The wheels are created in a stained glass technique, and consist of:

  • shells chosen from our local Mashpee (Cape Cod) beaches, consisting of interesting textural and pearlescence qualities
  • multicolored textured dichroic glass, which is glass that is treated with multiple layers of metal oxides, making it highly reflective 

The majority of the image that you see as you look through its eyepiece is created by the primary wheel, or the one closest to your eye. The secondary wheel provides the background or accent image. When you unscrew the knob holding the wheels and trade out the wheels front-to-back, you are rewarded with an entirely different kaleidoscopic view. The usual response from a first-time viewer is a gasp and an exclamation of delight. The teardrop eyepiece affords a pristine view of the isosceles triangle mirror image.

The kaleidoscope itself is 7-1/2" long x 2-1/2" diameter, and the wheels are 2-1/4" in diameter. When sitting on its custom walnut base, the kaleidoscope measures 7-1/2" long x 2" wide x 2-3/4" tall.

*You can also purchase other add-on wheels to make this kaleidoscope even more interchangeable:

and store your extra wheels in this Sm Wheel Rack-Walnut.
