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 pewter rims and is a rich brown color. 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.

This is a lovely hourglass. The reuse of spindles to create the wooden frame is sensitively done, and resulted in a unique gift with a nice personalized message. Thank you!!
About half the size i thought. Ok my fault. 4 times out of 5 the sand gets hung up and must be shaken or bumped to continue.
My hourglass arrived as promised. I loved my hourglass so much that I bought two more. The timeless beauty of the antique spool mounting is very nice. I will be purchasing more hourglasses from justhourglasses.com.
Thank you for this timeless treasure.
Exactly what I wanted. Service was great, communication was timely and helpful.
I'm extremely happy with my first purchase from them and it won't be my last.
This hourglass is really beautiful and I loved reading the history behind it! I purchased it to use as a pomodoro timer for studying and it works perfectly. Thanks for the swift delivery as well.
