Henry Bergeson Kaleidoscopes

For all you kaleidoscope lovers out there, we just got in some beautiful wooden kaleidoscopes in. All Henry Bergeson Kaleidoscopes are handcrafted of fine hardwoods with polished brass fittings and ultra-fine object cases. Each piece offers a unique, unsurpassed visual sensation that will delight both young and old. They are an absolute pleasure to use and are superbly crafted to last a lifetime.

"It all led up to this." Henry Bergeson says this matter-of-factly as the snow falls gently on his mountaintop home. During his youth, Henry developed a love for things mechanical. He took his love and ability to a new level with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

He was uncomfortable, though, with the analytical "hands-off" approach to engineering. Through the "real world" job experience, he developed a sense of the design. He was laid-off during the downturn in business in 1987, so he packed up and moved west. In Colorado, his new home, he followed his intuition and tried his hand at kaleidoscope building. And, well...the rest is in the making.

Each kaleidoscope represents the culmination of the evolution of an art form. Out of a lifetime of "peering into the looking glass", Henry Bergeson's artful engineering has no peer.
