Heirloom Hourglass - The Renaissance
Named for the European cultural
movement that brought about great artistic and intellectual achievements, The Renaissance from Heirloom Hourglass is inspired
by this time period and what it represents. Thus, Heirloom Hourglass strives to promote the evolution of the hourglass beyond
a timepiece of great historical significance to a time capsule through our modern artistic interpretation of the hourglass
as a vessel for storing and displaying sands and soils that are symbolic of a confluence of places, events, individuals, their
families, and the important moments of their lives. The Renaissance is handcrafted for you from solid marble bases and American
black walnut rope shaped pillars. Quarried in Sapin, the marble used is called Crema Marfil,
and it displays beautiful shades of cream and beige with subtle white and gray veining. This premium natural material pairs
wonderfully with the black walnut, which is finished to a warm, luminescent glow. Open and close The Renaissance with the
solid pewter ship wheels found on each side of the hourglass. The ship wheel design simultaneously pays homage to the rich
nautical history of the hourglass as a timepiece while making the filling of it for use as a time capsule and keepsake possible.
Fill your hourglass with sands and soils from a time and place that hold a special meaning to you, and pass it down through
the generations as a cherished family heirloom. A collection kit is included. This unique sand ceremony hourglass
is the perfect addition to a wedding unity sand ceremony, family unity ceremony, or vow renewal ceremony. It is
the perfect alternative to the unity candle for an outdoor wedding sand ceremony, destination beach wedding sand ceremony,
or an inside wedding where a candle cannot be lit. It also makes the perfect heartfelt gift for any occasion.
