Kaleidoscope - Music Box with Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker March by Hiroshi Wakabayashi
This lovely handcrafted music box kaleidoscope plays the Nutcracker March, which is one of the most well-known and recognized melodies of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet The Nutcracker. The March music plays during a lively party scene, which includes dancing, games, and merriment. Its a holiday classic loved by so many.
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 internal mandala from the 2-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".
