The rotating multi-colored stained glass disc is cleverly connected to the movement of the music box; subsequently, the spectacular kaleidoscope images seen through the lens are in constant motion as the music plays.   The original music box wind-up key is shown mounted on top of the thick carved wood base.  Screws and nuts may be tightened to hold the lens tube in position of choice. 

A charming estate item that is in very nice condition throughout as shown.  Estimated circa 1960’s-70’s.  The original music box still works and the music plays as it turns the colorful disc with multi-colored stained glass.  A charming and substantial kaleidoscope / music box collectible with great eye appeal and one that displays beautifully — and an excellent and fun interactive conversation piece.  Very generously sized with dimensions of 10” x 6” x 9” tall.
