Solid Ziricote Wood Hourglass With Spiral Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid ziricote wood grown in Central America. Often referred to as a "poor man's" ebony, this is a dark, very striking wood. The color is brown with irregular dark brown and black streaking. Ziricote is the most dramatic member of the Cordia genus, which grows in Central and tropical South America. It it also the heaviest, most dense wood we carry. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this sand timer makes a bold statement in any room.

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

Absolutely stunning

This piece looks great on my new desk. Incredible craftsmanship. In terms of timepieces, I usually opt for watches and digital clocks, but this hourglass is quite accurate (+70sec), and it is mesmerizing to watch. Very much a centerpiece to my desk. Thank you so much! : )
