Wild West - Mini Domed Kaleidoscope
The Wild West Mini Domed Kaleidoscope is a handcrafted brass individually etched scope. It has a 3 mirror system and a liquid-filled object chamber filled containing tiny lampworked glass and granular sized objects. The eyepiece has a 20 diopter glass lens which greatly magnifies the objects in the object chamber. The domed end acts as a light condenser and teleidoscope which both bring in more light and incorporates whatever it is pointed at into the image you see.
The Mini Kaleidoscopes measure approximately 2-1/4" tall by 3/4" in diameter and come in a wooden display/gift box.
Metal etching is a multi-step chemical process that allows for beautiful designs in relief on metal. Each kaleidoscope is individually designed and etched. While some designs may have a similar pattern there no two are ever exactly the same. The etching process introduces unique characteristics to each piece.
