Solid Chechen Wood Hourglass With Smooth Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid chechen wood grown in Central America (limited supply). A beautiful wood with fine texture and small pores it is also very durable. The color is a golden light brown with darker stripes of blackish brown. Like 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.

Great Product

We received the product and were very happy with how it turned out, especially reading who made it as a special touch

Exactly what we were looking for!

We were looking for an hourglass to use for our sand ceremony during our wedding. We wanted to find something that was not overly ornate and that could fit in seamlessly to our house decor. I was very pleased with this purchase, we were able to assemble it easily!

Beautifully Made

We are looking forward to using this gorgeous hourglass in our wedding sand ceremony.

hourglass kit

The unit is very small at first I thought too small.(its size is growing on me) The hole in the glass for filling is very tiny and you don't sell funnels. This is now a trick to find something that small that will allow sand to travel thru. This will be used in a wedding ceremony.

Very helpful and fast!
