Solid Cocobolo Wood Hourglass With Smooth Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid cocobolo wood grown in Central America. A beautiful wood, it's denseness makes it very strong and durable and it finishes very smoothly. The color is a variegated yellow-orange, dark red with irregular black stripes. Like all wood cocobolo varies in graining and color - with some hourglasses the black stripes are more prominent, in others the yellow-orange color is more prominent. No two are alike. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this classic piece is stunning.

As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

We love it!

This is the second hourglass I have purchased from just hourglasses. The timing is perfect, and the wood has a beautiful sheen.

Great hourglass and great company!

We found JustHourglasses after a terrible experience with another company that left us without an hourglass just two weeks before our wedding. JustHourglasses was extremely responsive with their customer service, very professional, courteous, and made sure to rush our order so that we got it with plenty of time to spare. The hourglass is gorgeous, and it really added something special to our wedding ceremony, but what truly stood out was the customer service. Thank you so much for helping relieve some stress just before my wedding and we couldn't be happier!!

Well made with real wood. Tried to find and other companies did not have the quality of this product.

Contacted company before ordering and they were able to confirm I would get the hourglass when needed.

Solid Cocobolo Wood Hourglass w engraving

The product was beautiful but the quote in the engraving was misspelled.

It was very disappointing that nobody in the process of shipping the product caught the mistake. The process of returning the product and getting my refund was cumbersome giving the fact that I have to ship and handle the return because of your company mistake. In addition I have to wait between 1-2 weeks for you to return my shipping costs.

* Note from JustHourglasses: We sincerely apologize for this experience. Not only do we usually have stellar results with our engraving partner this return was not handled according to our usual procedure of sending the customer a return label. This misstep has been addressed.
