60 Minute Standard Bobbin Hourglass


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 bobbin sand timer is has a ribbed edge and pewter accents with nicely contrasting black sand. Each timer has a cotton sticker placed on its base. These stickers were made in New York in 1917 and found in cupboard in an abandoned sewing thread factory in Leek, Derbyshire.

The sand glass is mouth-blown in the United Kingdom. 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.

This was far better than expected. Perfect gift for our sons 50th birthday. This company was a pleasure to deal with.

Love this hourglass

Purchased for my husbands office and it looks great. It’s so different, not the same old hourglass that everyone else sells. Love the look. Couldn’t decide between black sand or natural, may have to buy both. 😃
