In Stock




This authentic hourglass model is created in bronze, glass, and Indian rosewood with a distressed honey finish, from an 8th-century industrial design and measures 30 minutes. Ships' hourglasses were calibrated to the half hours of the ships' watch, and when turned precisely, served double duty in defining longitude. Frequently depicted in Renaissance still lifes, the hourglass symbolises death.
