Like Starlite, this brass laquered kaleidoscope has a 3-mirror system and four interchangeable and independently turning wheels of multi-colored fused glass created in a kiln. The majority of the image you see as you look through the kaleidoscope is created by the primary wheel, or the one closest to your eye, and the secondary wheel provides 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 kaleidocopic view. Imagine all the permutations with a total of four wheels to choose from. The interior view is very vidid, thanks to a powerful magnification lens inside the eyepiece.
This kaleidoscope measures 6-1/2" long x 1-1/2" wide, and is 2-1/4" tall when sitting on its custom dark wooden base.
