Pythagoras Hourglass - 12 cm Height - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter

- +

This gorgeous pewter hourglass, hand-made by Italian craftsmen, complete with special touchmarks within the pewter, is reminiscent of, and inspired by, classical design respectful to the age-old traditions of time measurement.

Buying as a gift? Why not make it even more special with our engraving service?

Throughout history, scientists, physicists, alchemists, engineers and mathematicians (Pythagoras - Pitagora in Italian - could be said to have been all of these!), 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.  

Running time is 2.5 minutes - a soft boiled egg, or formalising time for a turn on a board game!
