Delivery & Exchange Info

Collectable because of their combined historical and practical value. Ship’s hourglasses were calibrated to the half hours of the ship’s watch. To appreciate the important symbolism of the hourglass, Renaissance artists painted still lifes which were also called Vanitas, filled with symbolism and morals. They very often depict hourglasses.
