Utilitarian Charm


Back for those who missed it!!!



And we couldn't be happier when we found this Vintage Inspired Utilitarian Hourglass. This hourglass brings to mind the legacy of timekeeping in the 1300s. Hourglasses were very popular on board ships, as they were the most dependable measurement of time while at sea.

They were also commonly seen in use in churches, homes, and work places to measure sermons, cooking time, and time spent on breaks from labor.We just love the sophisticated feel this hourglass will bring to your room... Just picture it in a study or a home office...  Or maybe in your shelving unit atop of a few books... So beautiful!

Did we mention that similar ones sell for over $200?!!! Just saying :)
