This is a brand new Signature Collection hourglass. Handmade from solid chechen grown in Central America and protected by an oil rubbed finish. A heavy, dense wood the color is a rich, golden brown with dark brown lines and is as smooth as marble. Makes a wonderful vessel to hold sand from a treasured vacation or for a unity wedding ceremony!
As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in grain and color making each hourglass unique!
Made in the USA
Made when ordered, usually arrives in 7-10 business days.
This hourglass is gorgeous, as advertised. However there are two problems with it.
First, my intention was to have an hourglass that would time a 50 minute client session.
However if I fill the bulb 2/3 full, it runs through in about 5 minutes! Not so useful for timing
my sessions. OK I could live with that. But second: the shape of the bulbs is such that the sand
from the upper bulb does NOT completely drain. Because of the non standard shape, the bulbs
fail to act as efficient funnels, and there is always an unsightly ring in the upper hourglass!
