Small Nautical Hour Glass, Sand Glass, with Brass Holder

I Like Mike's Mid Century Modern

In our high tech world, the ingenuity of low tech solutions can sometimes be more delightful than the latest gadget. Such is the case with the hour glass, a functional time-telling device using only the natural forces of gravity as its battery. This one is a half-hour nautical version, hence the terminology on the top, including the “two dog watch” term that apparently refers to the period of time between 4-8 pm. You can read more about all that elsewhere, of course. It is simply for us to tell you that this one is made of glass and built into a brass carrying case. The condition is quite good.
