A fantastic antique hour glass. Made from three salvaged cotton bobbins used in the rag trade and dates from the turn of the century. They are mounted on two large cotton tread pieces to the top and bottom. A really quirky and unusal piece, wonderful as a sustainable gift!. The hourglass has a fabulous timeworn patina. Perfect to stage in a modern interior to add soul and character to a space.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
