For a great heirloom quality kaleidoscope consider this nicely finished Pomelle wood piece made by Mark and Carol Reynolds which was made in the year 2021. You will enjoy the Image inside because there is a unique narrow three mirror system in its interior. Multiple mandala points are present resulting in more than one focal point. The separate turning, oil-filled cell is filled with great glass pieces, shards of mirror, sculpted dichroic and lampworked glass, colorful beads and lovely bobbles.
The outside of this lovely, stunning Pomelle wood kaleidoscope has a high-quality veneer with a smooth, lacquered mirror finish. Near the eyepiece is their signature, recognizing the kaleidoscope as a Reynolds creation. We highly recommend this outstanding wood kaleidoscope because Mark and Carol Reynolds have been well-known in this business for over 40 years, and are certainly respected as one of the first kaleidoscope artists to bring this fascinating kaleidoscope art to the public.
These kaleidoscopes are built to last and are so beautiful. In 35 years of selling this model I have honestly never received an email regarding these leaking oil or needing repairs.
These kaleidoscopes by the Reynolds are indeed heirloom quality in my opinion.
