Kaleidoscope - Palmtop Galaxy Scope by Frank and Janet Higgins
Palmtop Galaxy Scope is an out of this world handheld kaleidoscope in the Higgins' palm-sized range of handcrafted kaleidoscopes. The Palmtop series is scaled-down from the Higgins' full-size kaleidoscopes but with the same high standard of optical system.
The body is made from a turquoise ripple stained glass soldered together in a triangle shape slightly tapered toward the object end. The object is small capstan tumble chamber filled with colorful lampworked glass. The interior features 3D imagery consisting of a central sphere surrounded by an explosion of aqua blue stars.
