Reasons to Desire this Hourglass

"All our Sweetest Hours Fly Fastest." - Virgil

The Expeditionis Sand Timer is hand-crafted from several antique thread bobbins used in the Victorian era in cotton and wool production. The hundred year old wood and pewter bears a heritage of different marks and knocks which contribute to the little timer's grand story. Every single one is different. Some are even streaked with deep tool marks where every last scrap of cotton was gleaned from the bobbin with knives.

Expeditionis timers bear the original Griffin Brand thread label.

Is it not truly incredible to think that one of your very ancestors might have worn cloth woven by bobbins such as this?

A unique piece which combines usefulness, history and British industrial heritage.

These bobbins journey of over a hundred years now continues with you.
