A thaumatrope is a toy that was popular in Victorian Times. A disk or card with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to combine into a single image due to persistence of vision.
These thaumatropes were featured in the Tim Burton film 'Sleepy Hollow'. Ichabod is reminded of his dead mother after meeting Katrina and has a flashback of her spinning a thaumotrope to comfort him as he falls asleep. Our version is made from Sterling Silver and creates a similar 'persistence of vision'. *to see the clip with this thaumotrope check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdwHUtSm9aY
