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.
There are some relics of the past that have endured far beyond the appeal of their practical applications. Once upon a time, the hourglass was used as a dependable way of measuring time. Nowadays, we’re more likely going to use our mobiles to keep track of our hours. But somehow, the hourglass lives on…
Today, it’s become a symbol for the fleeting movement of time – for the present state we’re in, that lies somewhere between the past and the future. (You’ll also notice an hourglass when you’re waiting for something to load on your computer… but that’s somewhat less romantic).
Authentic Models have created a collection of hourglasses that serve to remind you of the passing nature of time. Made from brass, glass and wood, each hourglass makes time look beautiful, standing elegantly on your mantel or desk.
It may measure time, but this hourglass from Authentic Models is truly timeless…
