This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid bubinga wood grown in Africa. Considered one of the Rosewoods it is a uniquely reddish brown color with evenly spaced stripes, uniform in grain and color, and finely textured. A beautiful, dense hardwood with a lustrous appearance, tnis wood can best be described as a cross between cherry and mahogany. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this is a truly gorgeous piece.
As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in grain and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

I had this hour glass custom engraved. It is beautiful and absolutely perfect!! The color and grain of the wood is amazing. It’s perfect, just perfect. And thank you to the very kind and helpful customer service woman who helped me for several days to get this right!! I couldn’t be more pleased! I highly recommend this company.
I purchased this beautiful hourglass as a 70th birthday present for our company's owner and am beyond delighted with the purchase. The staff was so friendly to work with and even assisted us after the sale of the hourglass. Thank you so much to Shannon for all her time answering my questions. I would recommend this company and the beautiful hourglasses to anyone and everyone. I purchased a fill yourself hourglass with sand from home. The hourglass was easy to assemble and my result was perfect.
We bought the put-in-your-own-sand type of hourglass. It came with clear instructions and everything we need except wood glue which we had been told in advance we would need to supply.
The woman who took our order and the man who makes the hourglass stands did a wonderful job of answering our questions quickly and the hourglasses were here within 3 days including the weekend.
The quality of these products is outstanding. I have purchased several for gifts for friends. We have been extremely pleased. I would definitely purchase again!
I bought the hourglass more than 4 years ago so I don't have a clear memory but I don't recall that there were any problems with ordering or the shipment of the item.
