River City Clocks 60 Minute Sandglass in Cherry

Features:

  • Minute sandglass
  • Hourglass is held in place within a decorative case featuring artistically turned wooden spindles
  • Sand flows within an individually handcrafted mouth-blown glass chamber and is accurate to within 60 seconds per hour which is quite remarkable for a 14th century technology
  • Hourglass is held in place within a decorative case featuring artistically turned wooden spindles
  • Glass chamber is made of sturdy 1.5mm glass with a reinforced center funnel
  • Sand is screened to remove particles too large and too small, then baked completely dry to eliminate any chance for condensation to form
  • Sand is measured into the glass in a controlled environment, baked a second time, and capped
  • Open cell foam shock absorbers are inserted into each case end to hold and cushion the glass
  • Hourglasses were originally used on ships as early as the 11th century as a way of measuring time and speed at sea
  • One of the first reusable, dependable and reasonably accurate methods of measuring time
  • In the 16th century, hourglasses were used in churches to measure sermon lengths and in factories to calculate time for manufacturing procedures
  • Later used within the culinary industry to measure baking and cooking times
  • Hourglass is an enduring and beautiful work of art that will provide a silent, accurate, and unobtrusive channel of time
  • Watching the thin strands of sand create much the same effect as watching the flames of a warm fire
  • Our beautifully proportioned hourglass will add a soothing, meditative focal point to any office, school, or home setting
  • Ideal gift for teachers, professionals, or yourself
  • Cherry finish
  • Case ends and spindles are cut, turned, sanded and finished with a high build lacquer to protect the wood
  • River City Clocks provides two years limited warranty

The Sands of Time

from Elizabethtown, KY – Verified Buyer

This is a well-constructed hourglass with a beautiful shade of rose-colored sand. My only slight criticism is that the cherry finish is not quite uniform in it's application.
