ONE LEFT IN STOCK!
This bobbin sand timer is a historic piece of art. The timer is composed of antique wood spools found in abandoned textile mills in England. The spindles and wooden base were used from 1939-1945 during World War II in a factory in Barrowford Mill, Nelson. These particular spools held tire cord for the Morris and Austin Car Groups. The spindles were pewter shielded to protect the edges of the spool. A vintage thread spool sticker is placed on the base to give it even more character.
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.
Absolutely love this unique piece. This was my first time using justhourglasses.com and I was impressed with the quality, value, and results. Timely shipping was a pleasant surprise too. A little messy on the packing materials (I recommend opening outside) but the piece arrived in excellent condition.
Awesome hour glass with a great story. Looks great on the mantle and the history of the materials used to construct make it a great piece! It was bought as a one hour hour glass and it times out right on the mark. It arrived well packed, quickly and intact. (I actually hate the packing peanuts, what a clingy mess, but I understand that ensures shipping success)
This piece was delivered promptly and lived up to it's website description and my expectations.
The hourglass is a stunning piece. My husband loved the history associated with it also. Just Hourglasses was so accommodating with my last minute requests and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a unique gift.
I purchased the 60 minute bobbin hourglass for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. 60 minutes for 60 years of love and memories. They love it! Dad, as a veteran, loves WWII memorabilia and mom collects antique sewing notions so it fits perfectly! It arrived quickly. The glass was a little loose when it arrived but customer service was very quick and helpful and offered an immediate fix! It is very unique and beautiful and I know my mom and dad will cherish it for years to come.
