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

A Beautiful Gift

I bought this gift for a friend from Africa who lives at the beach. It was the perfect gift. The quality and workmanship are superb. I would highly recommend this hourglass to anyone looking for a beautiful and unique gift.

solid zebrawood hourglass

beautiful product that i did not know existed until now.

excellent and helpful service. i needed the hourglass quickly and even though i didnt get it on time ye made every effort to get it to me. i was a little taken aback at how much i had to pay on customs charges coming into ireland . 58 euro.

hourglass kit

I ordered this in kit form to use in my upcoming wedding. The kit I got was the smaller size which was sadly much smaller than I thought it was going to be. Also after setup I was expecting to be able to immediately fill and flip the hourglass (as part of our ceremony) which will prove somewhat challenging with the way the set-up is designed. The kit requires glue after filling in order to use the hourglass - some I've seen on other sites have a hole in the top that you cover instead which would have worked better for my purposes.

However the quality of the product I received is very good. The wood is attractive the glass is solid and it will hold up nicely when all is said and done. It just did not meet the expectations I had from the description of the 'kit'.

Arrived quickly packed well - lots of packing peanuts and Styrofoam to protect it.

Outstanding hourglass

First of all it is beautiful. The color of the sand completes the appearance. And of course it works just fine making me get out of my office chair every fifteen minutes!!

Product arrived very quickly and communication was excellent.
