「Style Inspiration」
In our high tech world, the ingenuity of low tech solutions can sometimes be more delightful than the latest gadget. Such is the case with the hour glass, a functional time-telling device using only the natural forces of gravity as its battery.

Transparent glass bulbs hold the trickling white sand that measures out to 45 minutes, all housed inside of three gold metal bars. The top and base both have three metal studs that cover the metal bar hardware while also propping up the sandglass, adding a chic style element. The versatile aged brass finish will complement almost any color palette or pattern, especially in antique or traditionally-styled spaces. This functional and decorative hourglass makes an eye-catching office or bookshelf decor.

「History」
Marine hourglass is a timepiece of simple design that is a relative of the common hourglass, a marine, nautical instrument known since the 14th century (Hourglass History). They were employed to measure the time at sea or on a given navigational course, in repeated measures of small time increments (e.g., 30 minutes).

「Dimension」
4" L x 4" W x10.5 " H

「Condition」
Good vintage condition. Some aged patina on the top. One of the studs on the top have previously been replaced and does not match the rest (see picture).
