Vintage recycled Yorkshire northern England textile mills wood bobbin egg timer, vintage kitchen
Bobbin egg timer made from an old wood and metal bobbin from the textile mills of northern England. I bought this one in York from a textile mill in 1980, (yep, I am that old!). The actual wood bobbin was made and used in Victorian times, early 20th century. Lovely old patina on the metal tips of the bobbin, clear glass timer with pale sparkly pink sand.
In excellent condition - as bought- it has sat in a cupboard for 36 years.
Good size 15cm (6") highX 5cm (2") across top and base.
It takes 3 minutes and 40 seconds for the sand to empty.
