Quick Overview

Made from recycled industrial artifacts from the the early 1900s

Hand-blown glass

This sand timer has a history as unique as its style. The hourglass is composed of antique wood spools found in abandoned textile mills in England. The spools were used to hold thread, cotton, and yarn that were spun into fabric. The spindles and wooden base date back to 1907-1913 and were used in a factory in Calder Valley, Yorkshire which wove the thread into a cotton tartan fabric.

Each timer has a cotton sticker from 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. And now it's available with an empty globe so you can fill it yourself (shown filled)! Great for weddings or adding sand from a memorable vacation!
