Vintage Kaleidoscopes, "The Victoria" #32 By David Roenigk.
David Roenigk and his brother Marty created outstanding reproductions of early kaleidoscopes at their Business called Sir David's Reflections.
All of their kaleidoscopes are made of solid brass and instrument grade lenses and machined parts. Their Bush Reproduction, The Victoria Is exact to the original Bush in every detail. Note their kaleidoscopes outstanding in their own right for workmanship and beautiful images inside and out. These have increased in value over time as collectors prefer to keep their original Bush Scopes as is and enjoy the beauty of this reproduction.
The Victoria Was made in 1989 and intruduced at Strathmore kaleidoscope Exibition in 1989. I remember being there then.
The object case contains 27 Objects including 7 liquid oil filled ampules. The original Bush shapes were hand lampworked and created like the original parts.
