1943-50 Snowflake

Scope Name: Snowflake  (exists in two colors - red and blue).

Scope Number: 25  (the number is not listed on the scopes but the March 1950 Steven ad shows this scope as number 25).

Description: The scope is known as the "Snowflake" scope for the large mandala that looks like a snowflake on the middle of the scope (see pictures below).

Year: 1950 or earlier (the year is not listed on the scopes but the March 1950 Steven ad shows this scope).

Production Site: Saint Louis, Missouri

Dimensions: 7 1/2 inches tall with a 2 inch diameter.

Interior Image: 6 Point Mandala (30 degree 2-mirror system).

Objects:  Colored plastic pieces.

Other: It is assumed that this scope is older then 1949 since the March 1949 Steven ad states that the scopes have "Metal reinforced ends" and a photo below shows this scope with and without the metal ends.  The metal ends appear to have added around 1949 as a safety feature.  It appears that metal mirrors were also added as a safety feature by 1950 (see the March 1950 Steven ad).
