Vintage Kaleidoscope - Twister in Brass by Sheryl Koch
From the Joie de Vivre collection*
Twister is a handcrafted kaleidoscope featuring a 9" long spiral brass body with three differently colored interchangeable oil filled wands bundled together. As you twist the wands, exciting patterns and colors appear as the contents of the wands glitter in the light. Hold the kaleidoscope vertically and watch through the eye piece as the objects flow from the top to the bottom of the wand and make "fireworks". When the movement has stopped just flip the scope over and start again. A 3-mirror system produces a full field of kaleidoscopic imagery.
Twister is approximately 9" long by 1" in diameter with a bundle of three interchangeable 6" wands. Additional wands in a variety of colors can be purchased separately.
*From 1984 to 2020, Linda Given succeeded to bring a little more "joie" to the world from her retail store Joie de Vivre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Joie de Vivre was well known for its delightful, clever, beautiful, original and just plain wacky gift items ~ and for its wonderful collection of handcrafted and artistic kaleidoscopes. Joie de Vivre closed its doors in November 2020 after 36 wonderful years. We are honored to bring Linda's remaining inventory to you here. Please continue to check back in as we work to get all the scopes photographed and posted to this area. These are vintage kaleidoscopes that were on display in the store and do show signs of wear.
