Kaleidoscope - Music Box 'When You Wish Upon A Star' by Hiroshi Wakabayashi
This beautiful handcrafted music box kaleidoscope plays the song "When You Wish Upon a Star" which was written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for Walt Disney's 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio. The original version was sung by Cliff Edwards in the character of Jiminy Cricket, and is heard over the opening credits and in the final scene of the film. The song has since become the representative song of The Walt Disney Company.
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
This kaleidoscope has an overall antique look with a body made from torched copper tubing and wire set atop a lightweight square base of copper, wood and painted acrylic. The turning object plate is made with brass colored epoxy with a variety of colorful beads and stones set into it. When you crank the attached hand crank, the music plays and the object plate turns creating a colorful full field view of repeating mandalas from the 3-mirror system inside the copper tube. You'll enjoy the color and sparks when light reflects off the gold epoxy while hearing the lovely song at the same time.
A unique kaleidoscope sure to please both the eyes and ears!
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 8-1/2" tall with a base of 4" by 3-1/4".
