Welcome to Lotus Scopes kaleidoscopes and teleidoscopes, featuring the world’s only one-of-a-kind hand-blown glass kaleidoscopes! With a selection guaranteed to enchant young and old, novices and connoisseurs alike, each scope is meticulously hand-crafted to offer breathtaking kaleidoscopics in a work of art inside and out.
A teleidoscope is a kind of kaleidoscope that uses a spherical glass lens to produce kaleidoscopic images of real-life objects outside the scope. A kaleidoscope uses small objects called “magic” contained in an internal chamber.
