Made from recycled industrial artifacts from the the early 1900s, this three tier hourglass has a history as unique as it's style!
This three tier five minute timer has a history as unique as its style. The timer 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.
The sand glass is mouth-blown in the United Kingdom. As with all antique and hand-made items, the colors and decorations vary from piece to piece. We consider this to be a special part of their history and character.
I loved the rustic look of this sand timer. I bought it as a gift for my son. I thought it would look great on his desk in his office at work. He loves it!
When I first called the young women explained to me that they had just sold their last one in stock but were expecting more in a few days. I could call back then or order it now and just know it would be on back order and the order would be filled as soon as it came in. I went ahead and order the sand timer. The timer came in right when she said it would and they sent me an email letting me know my order was on it way! I appreciated her patience by explaining my options! I also appreciated that it was packaged really well considering it had glass and sand involved!!
The three tiered sand timer was just what I was looking for my wife on our tenth anniversary. This will become a family heirloom. My wife was totally surprised.
Easy to deal with.I wouldn't think twice about buying another product.
Exactly what I was looking for.
Although the product is nice and well done I was expecting a better personalized box and something that could come with the sand timer (as a certificate) explaining what kind of material was the object done. I believe that a big part of your clients buy the sand timer as a gift and it is not attractive to offer as it comes.
The service was good.
