5 Minute Antique Wood Tea Break 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 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.

Unique gift

Bought this one as a Christmas for a friend and she loved it, the imperfect antique look of it was really unique! Shipping was simple and efficient with great customer service too.

Hour glass

Have to say I’m quite pleased with my purchase. It’s going to be a Christmas gift for my son. He love hour glasses. This will be the first of many hour glass I hope to get him. So I’m sure I’ll be shopping with you again.
Thank you

Perfect and interesting

The tea break time is delightful! It helps me keep track of when my coffee has steeped long enough in the French press, then when it's been pressed enough. The unusual timing method adds whimsy to my mornings... and it fits well with other items of interest on the window sill. And the fact that it's not "perfect," as in machine made and identical to hundreds of others, adds to its appeal. There are imperfections that make it simple perfection!

Great graduation gift!

I needed a gift for a master’s degree graduate and this timer is so unique. Communication was prompt, and shipping was quick. I had a silver plate attached to inside bottom that read, “Good things come in good time.” The recipient loved it, and has it on her desk at school. The kids love it as well!


Great customer service, answered all my questions quickly, and I love the product -- I'll be back for more!
