3 Minute Antique Wood Sand Timer - Pewter

I purchased this for my office desk to use to time short tasks (think Getting Things Done 2 minute actions). It does the job and the time is right on at 3 minutes. The pewter and wood are nicely aged, and look good.

I purchased this for my son-in-law. He says it looks great, and it is quite functional. The transit time for him to receive was very fast. Excellent product and excellent customer service.

every minute is important

The 3 hourglasses I purchased are lovely and will be given as gifts. I'm very pleased with the promptness of your company and all your efforts to accommodate a change in one the first of my orders. The hourglasses came priority mail, which I hadn't expected but was very pleased with. I will purchase from you again. Thank you so much for making this buy such a pleasant experience. Kathy
