Made from recycled industrial artifacts from the World War II era, this bobbin hourglass is a historic piece of art and will make a wonderful vessel to hold the cremains of your loved one.

Quick Overview

  • Made from recycled industrial artifacts from the World War II era
  • Bobbin pieces from United Kingdom
  • Hand-blown glass made in the USA

The timer is composed of antique wood spools found in abandoned textile mills in England. The spindles and wooden base were used from 1939-1945 during World War II in a factory in Barrowford Mill, Nelson. The spindles are pewter shielded to protect the edges of the spool. A vintage thread spool sticker is placed on the base to give it even more character. The globe is hand blown in the UK

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. Shown fully assembled.

Too Small

Very nice urn, just wish it were made bigger for a person of 200 lbs or about 8 lbs of ashes (200 cu) in ashes terms. Very nice looking and lovely urn.
