Notes

This set of six pairs of hand-painted glass discs would have been inserted two at a time into a frame with a mechanism (probably a pulley system rather than rackwork) to rotate the two discs in opposite directions giving a chromatrope effect.

The painted discs were found in (probably) their original box, which is made of cardboard and fabric and measures 3.75 x 3.5 x 2.5 inches (9.5 x 8.8 x 6.3cm).
