Overview
 
Bronzed 30-Minute Hourglass on Stand. This 18th-Century hourglass is a replica of the glass that once served aboard a French admiral's flagship. Made of Indian rosewood,metal, and glass and colored in black and bronze with distressed French finish, it is packed with historical and practical interest. Sailing ships operated on 24-hour schedules, with four-hour shifts for each team. A half-hour hourglass located by the helmsman was turned every time the sand ran through and the ship's bell was rung: one bell for the first "glass," two bells for the second and so on up to eight for the last 30 minutes of the watch (shift). ***THIS PRODUCT IS SHIPPED DIRECTLY FROM AUTHENTIC MODELS*** Size: 18.5cm x 13cm x 25.4cm.
