Hourglass SandTimer 60 Minute 6.7" Black
Hourglasses were an early dependable, reusable and accurate measure of time. The rate of flow of the sand is independent of the depth in the upper reservoir, and the instrument will not freeze in cold weather.
From the 15th century onward, they were being used in a range of applications at sea, in the church, in industry and in cookery.
6.7" tall and 3.75" in diameter, this unique 60 minute sand timer is filled with black sand. Presented in a black, satin-lined gift box, it's the perfect gift for housewarmings, executive desks or everyday occasions.
