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.
