Rated 5 out of 5 by Jodi1950 Unusual accent piece!
I love hourglasses. You seldom see them available for purchase, so when I found this at Kirkland (of all places)! I knew it was mine!
It is quite charming. It is very heavy and looks like cast iron. The hour glass itself is real glass, not plastic or acrylic. It is fragile, but you do not need to worry about it tipping when someone turns it over "to see if it works". Yes, it works, but this is not a toy!
The open oval that the hourglass rests in is screwed in and has wingnuts which attaches it to the outside part of the stand.
It is suitable for all decor.
I carried this all over the store because it was the only one they had! Since it was priced at only $19.99 and looked so expensive, I did not want it to "get away".
No one believes I got it at Kirkland and certainly cannot believe the price! I am so pleased with this purchase. If you like the unique and unexpected, this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pammy58 beautiful bronze hour glass
I love my bronze hour glass. looks so pretty upon my mantel. saw it while visiting my GF in TN, well they do not have a Kirkland's near me in Bakersfield, Ca. Closest one is 75 miles away. so I ordered this when I got home. Love it. order was easy and packed so well. I had contemplated purchasing while in TN and carrying on plane with me but figured it would be best to order. Glad I did. I did not have to worry about breaking it. very well made ..

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ama259 It is great BUT . . .
I love the look of this hourglass and it goes perfect with my decor BUT the sand always gets stuck and does not keep the time. I got it just for show but my guest always point it out and someone always turns it up side down and then they are disappointed that it gets stuck. In a situation like this it turns a fabulous show piece into a cheap decoration. I still love it of course but when I mention where I got it from (bc I have quite a few of your things around my house) instead of getting a positive reaction I get and "oh . . ."

Rated 4 out of 5 by scotts369 Wigh it was a tempered type glass tho
I really love this product, however I had it sitting on my fireplace stoop. The dog knocked it over, hit the brick and shattered the glass. I went back and bough a second one, but I would like to see it in a heavy plastic or some type of unbreakable material. BTW....I love Kirkland's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cornzest Nice quality.
I had been looking for an hourglass for awhile. This one is really great. I was looking for one with an "Indiana Jones" feel and this one does. It's a decent size and weight and looks good on my desk.
