Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This vintage kaleidoscope may date to retro 1950 and is made of a light colored wood. A view through the cylinder shows beautiful, vibrant colors of red, pink, green, yellow, blue, and other colors. I would qualify this kaleidoscope as being more of a collectible for an adult, rather than being one that a child should use for play. It is a gorgeous old piece which would make a great collectible for display on the coffee table, bookcase shelf, or in the office. It works perfectly from a mechanical perspective. Cosmetically, however, it has a few slight scratches. There is a wooden button in the center of the wheel, and part of the button has been broken off. The wheel seems securely fastened, however, and turns without any problem. It's a wonderful old piece. Being a kaleidoscope collector myself, I would consider its beauty to far outweigh the flaws. This vintage kaleidoscope is 7" long and 4-1/2" around. The wheel is right at 2" in diameter. If you have questions about it, please let me know. Orders totaling $50 or more, as well as orders sent to apartment and business addresses, will be sent with signature confirmation.
