Vintage Wooden Kaleidoscopes, "Handheld Dry Cell in Cedar" 1987 By Tom and Carol Paretti.
What a wonderful well cared for kaleidoscope. There are no flaws or dings that we have noticed on the exterior of this rare kaleidoscope. Please note Note the oil cell is fine but the objects inside seem to be stuck thus the low price. We remember selling these in our gallery in the late 1980's in our Galena Illinois and Red Wing Glass Scope Locations. I fondly remember these as the feel of the wood and fine handmade craftsmanship really came thru beautifully Tom and Carol Paretti really have created a fine durable well-lasting kaleidoscope with this model as well as many others in their kaleidoscope line.
The exterior of this great kaleidoscope is in mint condition, unfortunately, the interior beads have gotten stuck in one position. They could possibly loosen up with time and position the scope with beads on top when not in use.
Wonderful Vintage kaleidoscope in great condition.
