Kaleidoscope 'Gemstone - Ruby' by Sue Rioux Designs
A great Anniversary, Valentine or July birthday gift.
Part of the Gemstone Collection, Ruby is an exquisite stained glass, 3-mirror kaleidoscope whose oil cell is filled with dichroic glass pieces and small baubles of pink, red, purple, and gold. The body is an iridescent red/hot pink finished with a ruby dichroic glass jewel enhancement. Easy to hold and breathtaking to view, the oil cell has square glass knobs on either side, affording the viewer an easy turning method. It is finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments.
It measures 6 1/2" long x 2-1/2" wide and stands 2" tall. Signed and dated by the artist Sue Rioux.
