If youre looking for a wonderful statement piece for a parlor or den, this elegant reproduction of the Bush parlor kaleidoscope made by VanCort Instruments is sure to impress. This vintage kaleidoscope was made in 1989, and despite being over 22 years old, it is still in remarkably great condition! This Bush kaleidoscope reproduction was so painstakingly well made that the series of 2500 kaleidoscopes caused the value of the original 1872 models to drop for more than 2 years after their introduction to the market. If youre looking for a truly one-of-a-kind heirloom kaleidoscope, this VanCort kaleidoscope is it. These models are very hard to come by in the kaleidoscope gifts market. Seize this opportunity to own a piece of kaleidoscope history.
