Crafted from bronze and wood in an 18th century industrial design, this is a beautiful example of a sandglass, long collectible because of their combined historical and practical value. Ship’s hourglasses were calibrated to the half hours of the ship’s watch, and if the helmsman didn’t turn the glass too early it doubled in defining longitude. Navigators tried to keep count of the hours; the galleons wrecked on the Western Australian reefs remind us of the perils of incorrectly kept time.
