60 Minute Pirate Bobbin Hourglass Pewter Edge

#3 Best Seller
in Bobbins


DISCONTINUED - new version:

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 bobbin sand timer has unique pewter decorations and black sand. Each timer has a cotton sticker placed on its base. These stickers were made in New York in 1917 and found in cupboard in an abandoned sewing thread factory in Leek, Derbyshire.

The sand glass is mouth-blown in the United Kingdom. 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.

Pirates treasure found

When this arrived it was a pleasant surprise in that it was even nicer than expected. The pewter trim and aged wood end pieces gave it exactly the antique Pirates of the Caribbean look I was hoping for. Worth every nickel as a home accent piece.

Retirement gift

This was the perfect retirement gift for my law enforcement officer. He absolutely loved it.
