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 trimmed in pewter and has 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.
Awesome product. Very helpful getting a customize engraving ordered. Shipped about a day or two later than I was hoping. Took about ~2 weeks from ordering for the product to ship. For your planning purposes.
This was purchased as a gift. Beautiful and well made, very happy with the purchase
I was very pleased with the service assistance I received. The shipment arrived in very good condition in a timely manner. Their service was top notch.
