Vintage Brass Kaleidoscope with Interchangeable Wheels and Wood Stand, Oil Cell


A unique brass kaleidoscope that comes with two different wheels and a wooden stand. It measures about 9.75" long. The wheels are/were filled with a slightly oily substance it appears. One is empty for the most part but still leaks a bit. The other is full and working. There is a small plug on each wheel that must be how it is filled, but I do not know how to refill the leaking wheel. The end of the kaleidoscope screws off and on to change out the wheels as I pictured.

I tried to capture a few shots of what just a few of the designs are like, however it is much nicer in person. The stand is a great way to display it when it is not in use.
