Kaleidoscope Homepage

Kaleidoscopes have fascinated people for over 200 years. In 1816, through his study of the polarization of  light, Sir David Brewster invented the kaleidoscope. There was a flaw with the patent registration, which led to others soon manufacturing them, and achieving the financial success rather than himself.

Popularity of the kaleidoscope increased during the Victorian age in Europe, and came into American homes in the 1870's. Many changes and improvements were made, and other patents given. Charles G. Bush of Boston manufactured a kaleidoscope with a stand that was widely used in American parlors. Whether used as toys, designing tools, or just for entertainment, kaleidoscopes still remain a delight to many people of all ages and lifestyles.
