Kaleidoscope 'Gothic Special' by Frank and Janet Higgins
Limited Edition #24
Gothic Special is part of the Higgins' high-end range of conventional kaleidoscopes featuring a twin mirror system. One side is a 2-mirror system producing beautiful 8-point mandalas while the other side is a 3-mirror system producing a full field kaleidoscopic view. The body of the scope is a rich stained glass with external decorative elements.
Gothic Special's object is a hand-rotated cylindrical barrel comprising around 60 individual glass elements including millifiore, jewels, stained and dichroic glass shapes. And if that isn't enough - the Higgins created this scope so that the object is reversible, giving a second set of images for each mirror system.
Gothic Special measures approximately 9" long by 2-1/2" wide (at the object) by 2-3/4" tall.
