1 Minute Bobbin Antique Spool Timer


Continue Shopping or Checkout

As the Victorian cotton and woolen mills closed throughout the industrial North of England and Scotland over the last 40 years the antique wooden bobbins and shuttles left behind have been transformed into original wooden items.

These unique gifts stand the test of time and will conjure up for decades to come their past, each and every time they are viewed or handled.

This timer has brass decorations and has already proven to be very popular. As with all antique and hand-made items, the colors and decorations vary slightly. We consider this to be a special part of their history and character.

1minute Bobbin Spool timer

As described. Nice looking piece. Wanted to see if I could open it up and put in my own contents but the glass seems to be sealed. My take a drill to it and see if I can accomplish my goal.

My New Hobby!

Thank you for replacing the hourglass for the unit broken in transit. I have all my hourglasses lined up on the fireplace shelf.
I have room for a few more and most likely will be ordering another hourglass next week.

Love It

The One Minute Bobbin Spool timer was exactly what we where looking for, blends in with the professional office it is used in.

A lovely little timer, though the time is off.

Ordered it mostly just to have a simple thing to time small kitchen tasks, without compromising a desired aesthetic. It arrived looking precisely as pictured, however, it's a solid 30 seconds off. It typically times between 1:30 and 1:34 which is notably more than the +/-10% mentioned with regards to "Hourglass Sand Timer Accuracy".

This was definitely a bit of a bummer, but it is lovely and it didn't take me long to learn were roughly a minute was visually within the timer. I think forgiveness regarding the time discrepancy is reasonable given we're talking about a 1 minute timer with such a small amount of sand as it is. Not worth causing a fuss over and I am quite happy with the addition to my kitchen.
