In this simple but beautiful classic hourglass, there is an embedded compass, to help find (metaphorically speaking) the right direction for one's life. It is crafted with wood and brass, decorated with damask prints that give an exquisite and unique character. It is accompanied by a small booklet with a brief history of the hourglass.
The compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that uses the concepts of magnetism to shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions. They usually include a diagram known as a "compass rose" that shows the directions north, south, east, and west on the compass face as abbreviated initials.
Size: The Compass Hourglass spans approximately 5 x 10.5 cm (1.97 x 4.13 inches)
