Vintage Kaleidoscopes, "Marblescope # 700" By Artist John Culver. Wonderful Marble Scope from the late 1980s. Johns attention to detail is amazing. All his extra work to the exterior makes this marble scope fit more in the sculptural artwork department when compares to a simple stained glass marble scope. The exterior is made from mirror and Blue opalescent stained Glass and is soldered together in traditional copper foil methods. The marble is hand made and is 15/16 inches in diameter and is interchangeable with same size marbles.
Dimensions of this kaleidoscope are 9 3/4 inches long by approx. 1 1/2 inches tall. Preowned vintage kaleidoscope in wonderful condition with no issues problems or breaks in the glass that we can find.
There is one minor break in the solder joint where the wire attaches to the body of the scope on one prong but is very strong and stable.
