What an awesome accent piece! This beautiful Decorative Hourglass Sand Timer is 12" tall by 4 1/2" wide and it's just mesmerizing watching time trickle through this shapely timepiece (much more exciting than tracking that second hand!)! Each flip lasts approx. 2 hours. The housing is actual glass with slightly curved, vertical grooves. What a classic way to time a workout, a meditation period, a reading session, play time, work time or for whatever you need to accomplish (or not) in about 2 hours. Need more time? Just flip it over (some things in life need a do-over!)! It's just a unique way to free yourself from the clock or from waiting for that darned timer to beep at you!
Hourglasses are a distinctive, iconic timepiece, unlike anything else. One of those great accent pieces that never goes out of style. Add this timeless timepiece to any table, console, bookshelf or countertop and it will surely be a conversation starter!
