Kaleidoscope - Tumblescope Scallopino by Frank and Janet Higgins

A new handcrafted design from Frank and Janet Higgins, the UK's only full-time kaleidoscope artists. 

Scallopino is a handheld kaleidoscope with an end-lit rotating tumblescope object chamber.  The body is made with dark turquoise ripple glass soldered together in a triangle shape to house the internal mirror system. 

Inside the object chamber you'll find handmade lampworked glass in a variety of complimentary colors and a generous amount of highly reflective dichroic glass.  The interior images have an unusual twist!  The central mandala has a deeply scalloped perimeter and is surrounded by strongly distorted, but symmetrical repeats.  This is a very unique kaleidoscope design.

This kaleidoscope measures approximately 6-1/2" long by 2-3/4" wide at the object chamber end and 1-1/4" wide at the eye piece end.
