Vintage coffee grinder kaleidoscope is an antique, brass, coffee grinder, that was upcycled into a kaleidoscope in the early eighties.
The coffee grinder is mid-century with a lot of dents and rusty parts, even discolorations on the brass, where it acquired a green patina with time.Its traditional handlle was taken off so that making the kaleidoscope would be possible.The kaleidoscope part comes from the early eighties.
All of the grinder's inner parts were taken off and the kaleidoscope mirrors took their part.Then the tube was filled with the beads and other, colourful bits and parts, that make a kaleidoscope so magical.At the lower end of the antique coffee grinder tube a piece of glass was placed and another, smaller one on top, where we look into the kaleidoscope.
You just put your eye on the smaller hole and then just turn it around with your fingers, just like any other kaleidoscope.
This vintage coffee grinder- repurposed kaleidoscope measures about 22cm in height x 5cm in diameter (8.66 '' x 1.96 '' ).It is not a very light item.On one of the photos you can see the kaleidoscope artist's card, attached or loosely tied on the coffee grinder/kaleidoscope.
