Makes a unique and special gift!

The outer casing is made from a hardwood bobbin that was used in a New England textile mill for many years. Most re-purposed bobbins are between 50 and 100 years old. Consequently, each kaleidoscope is distinctive and has a genuine antique finish that just can't be faked. Inside the bobbin is a rotating tube that fragments whatever is in view. The kaleidoscope measures just under 9" in length.

Handcrafted by Ma's Bobbin Works.

I ordered one for a Christmas gift and decided to get one for myself. What a wonderful "repurpose" idea! I love that it is a true kalidescope...no plastic chips floating around in a tube! I love looking at everything with it!

I love the old time charm, as well as the history wooden bobbin's "gift" to us; hummm, the storie's wooden bobbin's could tell, if only, if only.

Charlene, We agree! When you hold one of these old bobbins you look at the patina and the marks and wonder what it has been up to for the last 50 or 100 years.
