Hanging Hourglass

Italian Craftsmanship...

... Defies Time!

This is a Brand New Item.
Having Said so, Forget it ...

Because What You'll See on This Page is a Meticulously Crafted Work of Art That's Made to Look Like a 200 Year Old "Antique"!

Different, Elegant, Functional and Highly Decorative, This Unusual Sand Timer is a Tasteful Blend of Modern Artisanship With the Nostalgic Creativity of the Past.
It Will Enrich Your Office With Superb Dignity and Embellish Any Corner of Your House With a Touch of Originality.

The End Caps and Wood Base are Made With Walnut Wormwood Closeup Finished "Faggio" Wood That's Been Wormed, Scratched and Faded to Perfectly Simulate the Aging Process.
Even the Metal Parts are Made With "Irregularly Aged" Brass.
(A Finish That's Somewhat Different From "Antique Brass" as It Looks more Like "Polished Brass" That's Tarnished Over Time). Some Areas (Where it Would be Logical to Assume Frequent Handling) are Shiner Than the Rest.

Bead Base A Large (Almost Five and a Half inches in Diameter) Brass Disc, Located on Top of the Wood Base, is Suitable for Elaborate Engravings (Please use Only Reputable Engravers as we don't Carry Spare Parts for this Unit). On the Front Part of the Base is Also Found a Bead Counter that Can Keep Track of Up to Six Turns of the Timer. Behind the Beads is Another Metal Plate That's Suitable for Small Engravings (i.e., Names and Dates).

Towering Nearly 22 inches in Height,
This is a "HIGH IMPACT" Item...
... And a Sure Conversation Piece!
