Pirate Bobbin Hourglass Urn


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This is a beautiful and historical hourglass suitable for adding your loved one's cremains. 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 unique pewter decorations and makes a wonderful vessel to hold your loves one's cremains.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 hourglass globe 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.

Pirate Urn

The Urn is nice. But it needed to come with a funnel, especially for the expense.

Mary Jo,

Thank you for your review! We do actually include funnels that fit many of our fillable hourglasses (they come with the hourglasses where you add sand). Unfortunately the funnel neck is too narrow to allow ashes to flow freely which is why we do not include them in our urn hourglasses. Sorry for the inconvenience!
