Old Glass Blogpost - featuring Pilkingtons Kaleidoscope!

Chance Brothers Kaleidoscope

I love this Victorian glass first manufactured by Chance Brothers but sadly withdrawn by Pilkingtons 1957 - 1961. I've recently completed a couple of restorations using this beautiful glass which comes in 13 different tints;

Blue Kaleidoscope.

Pink Kaleidoscope.

Apricot Kaleidoscope.

The closest match for restoration purposes is currently Muranese. For more examples / information on old glass please visit the Old Glass Directory on my website.
