Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.

That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that don’t break from tradition.

Traditionally, a ship’s speed was measured in knots. Its speed was needed to roughly calculate its position, and was measured using a log-line: a long rope that is knotted at fixed intervals. Using a floater, the line was run out from the aft deck, while the hourglass timed and retrieved the knots paid out during the minutes counted. Knots were then translated into nautical miles.

The Brass 3 Minute Sandglass is a replica model of such hourglasses, and is a lasting accessory for your office desk or coffee table. Made from polished brass and shiny glass, tip this opulent sandglass over and watch as the base fills with white sand. The sand will fully transfer into the base in three minutes, so you can keep time in a traditional way. As beautiful as it is practical, this sandglass is an elegant, nostalgic piece from a world of its own...
