Giant 60 minute sand timer, 1 foot high ...
A large Hourglass, 1 foot high, is a wonderful object to behold, and we are sure Merlin would have been really proud of this one! The wooden body is made from an old bobbin, originally used back in the hey-day Britain's textile industry.
- Height around 30cm
- Runs accurately for 60 minutes
- Hand-blown glass
- Housed in polished original wooden bobin
When we first set eyes on these large hourglasses, we knew we had found something special. They are made by a company in the North of England, who have for 35 years garnered old industrial artefacts belonging to our industrial past from all over Britain. They have a workshop where all re-useable parts of these artefacts are cleaned, waxed and polished, turning them into a wide variety of interesting and beautiful objects. Their aim is to maintain the characteristics of the artefacts, consistent with offering authentic, affordable and attractive gifts, which you would be proud to give and delighted to receive.
