Victorian kaleidoscopes

Victorian kaleidoscopes are an enjoyable pastime of yesteryear. A form of relaxation viewing the swirling changing colors of the Victorian kaleidoscopes calmed the adults or pacified the youngsters of the era. Victorian kaleidoscopes were often of a high quality nature and were really optical instruments that were intended for adults, not for a child as a toy. A Victorian kaleidoscope can take you back to a time when the televisions weren't blaring and the video games weren't beeping. Turn everything off all the electronics, and take a moment and sit by the window, look up to the sky and take a gander through on of our  beautiful Victorian kaleidoscopes. A little history of the Victorian kaleidoscope - it was patented in 1816 by Sir David Brewster (1781-1868) in Scotland. His invention, or at the very least his perfecting of it, has to do with the polarization of light. He was a physicist and natural philosopher - what better person to come up with this idea and hand it down for his legacy.

The Victorian kaleidoscope remained very popular all throughout the Victorian era. Imagine relaxing in the parlor viewing one of your many kaleidoscopes. Some of the Victorian kaleidoscopes of the era were called table parlor kaleidoscopes. The sat on a stand and looked upward, looking almost like a fat telescope. We have several different kaleidoscopes from which you can choose from. One such type is created from clear or colored glass tubing that is frosted or etched into wonderful themes and designs.
