Diogene Hourglass - 8.5 cm Height - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Glass

- +

Hand-made by Italian craftsmen, this little pewter hourglass is reminiscent of, and inspired by, classical design respectful to the age-old traditions of time measurement.

Throughout history, scientists, physicists, alchemists, engineers and mathematicians, have all used the hourglass to make sense of the world, in terms of both conventional and abstract time and space.  

The hand-cast pewter frame both supports and protects the glass, and the soft pewter hue adds to the timeless beauty of watching sands of time trickle from top to bottom.
