"Yellow" is a vintage kaleidoscope by Peach from 1986. The kaleidoscopes is a three mirror kaleidoscope in a striking array of primary colors that catches the eye in a delightfully pleasing way. The kaleidoscope is in excellent condition considering the age of the kaleidoscope. Inside the kaleidoscope you will see as much color from dry tumbling objects within the object cell.
Peach Reynolds Was a pioneer in the kaleidoscope renaissance in America in the 1980s. He traveled to many art shows and his work was carried by many fine kaleidoscope galleries across the United States. Allen Wilson wrote " During the period of the 80s, Kaleidoscopes by Peach consisted of three partners and several people hired to assist in the making of the scopes. The partners consisted of myself, Allen Wilson, Mark Reynolds (Peach's brother) and Peach. My wife, Karen, was the main constructor of the end pieces. Credit goes to Peach for his initial ideas but the company was also built upon the ingenuity of many others. So, it is 'Kaleidoscopes by Peach' that you are selling but not kaleidoscopes by 'Peach Reynolds'. I myself put more than a decade into that artistic endeavor and feel that many others should be recognized. With all that said, Kaleidoscopes by Peach fell apart about 1988 due to some unfortunate circumstances with other people in the business. Peach and I decided to leave the company in Mark's hands and he has performed well with his beautiful kaleidoscopes." Peach was responsible for the creations, “Electrascope” and “Camerascope.”
This “Yellow” Era 1986 is signed and dated near the eyepiece. Paperboard casing for the body is painted with acrylics and finished with waterproof glaze. Free-falling beads, sea shells, beads or buttons are common within their object cases.
