Rare 17th C. English turned oak hourglass

( ID: ea815 )

A particularly elegant example of a very early hourglass. Most examples are found date to the 19th C. however judging by the clouding in the glass, the age and softness of the oak wood, I would date this example to the 17th C. and at latest the 18th C. 

Truly a beautiful example.

Height is 7", 3 1/2" wide.
