This sturdy metal hour glass is a 1 hour sand timer. The classic and sophisticated style of this hourglass makes an amazing decorative piece. The old world style will make a handsome addition to your home or office decor. Just flip once on each side to see the beauty of sand flow down between two glass infused bulbs through a narrow opening for a 1 hour duration. Now you can pass time having a great visual element to look at in your background. Makes a great gift for dads, students, teachers, doctors and more!
