Kaleidoscope 'Old Flame' by Frank and Janet Higgins
The Flame range kaleidoscopes are rectangular-bodied with characteristic "Flame" decorative detail and capstan-style object chamber. Variations include: 2-mirror (mandala image), 3-mirror (unbounded image) or double chorus line. They can be endlit or sidelit with either dry or oil-filled object chambers.
This version of Old Flame is a 2 mirror with a central mandala image handmade from purple glass. The rotating object chamber is sidelit, meaning light enters through the sides of the object chamber. The object chamber is oil-filled and contains Frank's own handmade lampworked glass in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Frank also includes dichroic glass inside the object chamber offering additional sparkle and texture to the imagery.
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 7-1/2" long by 1-3/4" wide and stands 3" tall.
