Monarch 2 Walnut Wood, Brass, Parlor Kaleidoscope, by Van Cort Instruments.
A rare find. This is a wonderful Victorian-style walnut wood lacquered brass reproduction-styled parlor kaleidoscope. The 8 brass spokes look like a ship’s wheel and help with turning the separate dry cell chamber. The two mirror system is precise; the dry cell is filled with awesome multi-colored frosted glass beads and hand lampworked glass.
