NEW! 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.

This bobbin sand timer has an unusually shaped glass globe. 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.

Best hour glass

Great hour glass with a touch of nostalgia. I really like the look of this model, however, the exact time is 55 minutes and 18 seconds.
