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.
NEW! 6x10 size now available with 50 minute globe
Made in the USA

I am delighted with my new Cocobolo Hourglass. The wood is beautiful and construction is well done. Was impressed that the hourglass is exactly timed for one hour. It looks beautiful wherever I put it. Hats off to the maker! Also hats off to Justhourglasses for carrying this item and shipping it promptly.
I loved the craftsmanship of the hourglass on the website. When I called with a question the customer service rep was so friendly & knowledgeable. The product arrived & is even prettier than in the picture. Thank you!
This hourglass and the custom engraving were even more wonderful than I had hoped for. Stunning! The photo on the website is nice but doesn't truly do it justice.
The fast response from multiple emails I sent as I made my final choice and needed to determine what would work best was amazing. I was able to get all of my questions answered quickly creating a tremendously pleasant experience.
The hourglass itself is beautiful! Directions for assembly are also easy to follow.
However assured that it's designed to work with almost any sand. I found the sand that doesn't work. I did test a small amount as directed but not a lot as I didn't want it to look used. On my wedding day the sand just stacked in the top and would not be forced into falling as hoped.
My husband and I had to dump out the sand we poured on our wedding day and had to re-pour with sand that we found of a slightly smaller grain in the wrong color combo in order to get the hourglass to work as it should and to finish assembly.
Super quick response to all my concerns with order entry and processing!
Purchased hourglass for a Christmas Gift arrived well packaged & outstanding workmanship our friends were very pleased. JPR
