Vintage Kaleidoscopes,"Charles Bush Kaleidoscope" Mostly Original Era 1873. All is original on this model except the brass end turning mechanism does not have the 1873 date and Bush Prov RI stamping so I am not 100% sure this brass end piece is original. We acquired this kaleidoscope from a private collection. Great the interior image. Still has original magnification lens. We do like to leave things in conditions we find them as the buyer can decide to keep all original as possible or add as they please.
