This 15 minute timer is made of recycled industrial artifacts dating back to the 1960‘s. The timer is composed of antique wood spools found in abandoned textile mills in England. The spools were used to hold thread, cotton, and yarn that were spun into fabric. This particular timer was a "tumbler" and was used as a roller. Yarn passed between these rollers to be pressed and controlled before it was spun into fabric. The tumblers came from Joseph Lumb at Folly Hall Mill, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, which closed around 1969.
Each timer has a cotton sticker from placed on its base. These stickers were made in New York in 1917 and found in cupboard in an abandoned sewing thread factory in Leek, Derbyshire.
The sand glass is mouth-blown in the United Kingdom. As with all antique and hand-made items, the colors and decorations vary slightly. We consider this to be a special part of their history and character.
