Polariscope is a handheld dry cell kaleidoscope producing images using polarising filters. Images appear in mostly pastel colours against a black background. The body is made with six equally sized pieces of stained glass held together with decorative solder. The object chamber has a six pointed glass plate that offers easy turning for optimal viewing.
Best viewed in strong lighting conditions as the filters absorb over half the incoming light.
The scope measures 5-1/2" tall by 2-1/2" in diameter.
