Both practical and attractive, this silver 30 minute hourglass makes the perfect accessory for your kitchen counter, desk or anywhere in your home or office! Easily adjusted with the knobs on the side, you can start the sand falling to time 30 minutes anytime with ease.
Luitprand, an eighth century French monk, was the first person to use an hourglass to measure time. Although it is known as an ‘hourglass’, the times measured varied between 15 minutes to one hour. Most hourglasses did not use sand, rather the most accurate devices used powdered marble, tin and lead oxides and pulverised burnt eggshells.
Made from glass and metal, the 30 Minute Renly Hourglass looks great, and is easily cared for and wiped clean.
