The colors range from brown, orange, red, golden, and black all embedded with a shimmering iridescenceLike all wood, chechen varies in graining and color - no two are alike. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this classic piece is stunning.

As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

Chechen Wood Hourglass

I’m very pleased with my purchase of this hourglass. It’s hard to find high quality items like this anymore. The Chechen wood and spiral spindles make for a very antique look like something Gandalf might have on a shelf. It’s pretty accurate as a sixty minute timer too but I think most people will buy it for the work of art that it is. It’s sure to get a lot of great comments when visitors stop by.


A beautiful hour glass, and when we timed the sand, it was almost exactly 1! (Around 5 seconds of deviation). Reliable timer for sure, and the carving is wonderful. Incredibly well carved.

Love the hour glass, beautiful piece

We are looking forward to celebrating the union of two families with the blending of the sand in this keepsake hourglass.

just beautiful

My hourglass is beautifully made, smooth to the touch. It runs 61 minutes. It's a very nice accent piece in my living room.


My custom hourglass arrived sooner than expected and exceeded my expectations. This piece is not only beautiful, but the construction is solid. This piece is exactly what I envisioned. I would definitely recommend this purchase.
