Archimède Hourglass - 11.5 cm Height - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Glass
As seen in the film The Man With the Iron Mask, this iconic hourglass, crafted from pure pewter, is reminiscent of the classic timepiece that has been a key instrument over the centuries.
Throughout history, scientists, physicists, alchemists, engineers and mathematicians (clever Archimedes was all of these!), have all used the hourglass to make sense of the world, in terms of both conventional and abstract time and space.
This can still be relevant in these modern, and increasingly rushed times; the iconic form and underlying symbolism of the hourglass makes it a special addition to any study, music room or kitchen.
This small hourglass is the little brother to a larger version in the same style, featured in the Italian film comedy It Can't Be All Our Fault.
