1 Minute Bobbin Antique Spool Timer


Continue Shopping or Checkout

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 timer has brass decorations and has already proven to be very popular. 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.

Exactly a minute!

This beautiful little timer is just what I wanted for my stretches. It’s so charmingly made by hand and you can clearly see the sand flow down. Will order again. Thank you!

Marking Time

I purchased the 1 minute and 3 minute antique sand timers for use in games of Rummicube (no 2 minute sand timers were available.). They look nice together on the table and depending on how pokey the players are, one or the other gets more use. They both keep time well and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

1minute Bobbin Spool timer

As described. Nice looking piece. Wanted to see if I could open it up and put in my own contents but the glass seems to be sealed. My take a drill to it and see if I can accomplish my goal.

My New Hobby!

Thank you for replacing the hourglass for the unit broken in transit. I have all my hourglasses lined up on the fireplace shelf.
I have room for a few more and most likely will be ordering another hourglass next week.
