This kaleidoscope features 2 wheels created from dichroic glass which shimmers more than stained glass. This is one of the best crafted wheel kaleidoscopes available. This is one what was designed By Janice Chesnik and one of her most popular kaleidoscopes. The colors seem to change when viewing this kaleidoscope while just panning across the room. This kaleidoscope features dichroic glass wheels which produce a rainbow of colors. Dichroic Glass is formed by vacuum plating metals onto the surface of the glass. The wheels on this kaleidoscope are interchangeable (there is a brass nut on the end). Extra wheels are available for this kaleidoscope including a stained glass wheel(25.00 ea), an agate wheel (45.00 ea),and a Fiesta(millefiori glass) wheel(72.00ea).
Now made by her son John Green their craftsmanship is superb with exquisite attention to detail. Their mirror systems are among the finest in the craft. As with all her current work the brass barrels have now been professionally coated with a tarnish resistant finish. This process is done by the same manufactures that provide professional finishes for faucets.
The large mirror system and interchangeable wheels makes the Floret series THE ONE TO OWN.
