Stained Glass kaleidoscopes, "Octopus Garden" by Kaleidoscope Artist Joanne Jacobs is 8" long and the body is 2 1/2" tall. The glass tube is about 4" long and has a 1 1/4" diameter. The tube is oil filled (mineral oil) and nice brightly colored beads. The oil filled vials are nicely sealed and tested to prevent leaks. The oil cells allow the beads to move in a nice soothing pace while viewing. A nice raised brass filigree of an Octopus adorns this beautiful kaleidoscope. H ighly recommended.
"My wife has always wanted a kaleidoscope, and has a friend who collects antique and contemporary artisan kaleidoscopes. Those facts only increased the pressure on me to get it right the first time. The photos and descriptions at "Kaleidoscopes to You" left me assured that what I was purchasing would please my wife. When the kaleidoscope arrived it exceeded my expectations and (more importantly) her expectations. Thank you!" John
