& Teleidoscopes from our luxury
collectible gift range.
Invented by Scottish scientist Sir David
Brewster in 1816 the kaleidoscope was named after the Greek words
Kalos (meaning beautiful), Eidos (meaning form) & Scopos (meaning
to see). The kaleidoscope cylinder contains mirrors joined at angles
which reflect the image of the ornate objects at the end creating
infinite variable patterns when viewed through the eyepiece. The
teleidoscopes have an etched domed glass lens to give similar
patterns, but the patterns & colours are achieved by whatever you
point it at ! Each is hand crafted and made from a range of materials
including wood, glass or gold & nickel plated brass. Choose a unique
gift idea from this page whether
it's the petite pocket kaleidoscope or large multi lens models, each
one will give hours of visual fun.
