This stunningly accurate, well-calibrated hourglass allows the passage of time to be recorded in the time-honored ‘Olde Way’ of our ancestral past. Its beautiful Cherry finish, thickly lacquered and grained, offers a brilliant color combination with the blonder sand behind. 12 inches high, it is of a scale not as well obtrusive, yet yet substantial enough to appreciate not only for its practical applications but also for its superb craftsmanship. This 60 minute sand timer is instructive in its interesting historical aspect as a chronometer as well as being useful for games and for such things as the timing of family functions.
For desktop or for living room beauty and style, this very elegant relic is a superb example of historical place and time and a valuable keepsake to pass along to future generations. Its playfulness competes with its overall effect as a not far object of art. This is some thing very lovely.
