Authentic Models Bronzed 30 Minute Hourglass With Stand
Burton Blake are pleased to bring you this Bronzed 30 Minute Hourglass with Stand by Authentic Models. Hourglasses were critical instruments in the days when ships needed to keep track of time in order to define longitude and these hourglasses were calibrated to the half hours of a ship's watch. A mistake in turning it by the Helmsman could mean a drastic miscalculation of longitude and the possible loss of the ship. This hourglass and stand has a bronzed finish. The stand is mounted on an indian rosewood base.
