The cherry 60 minute hourglass measures 9"H x 5.5"Dia. It is made with hand blown glass and is fixed within a hand polished cherry finished ash wood case. Hourglasses are aesthetically pleasing ornaments, rather than accurate timepieces. This hourglass is usually accurate to within 5 minutes. The sand filler is light brown in color. This item is ideal for keeping track of telephone conversations, meetings & other time sensitive tasks, limited only by ones imagination. This is a very popular gift for corporate events and parties.
