Rare And Impressive Giant Antique Art Nouveau Carved Wooden Egg Timer
Very unusual, stunning and substantial carved wooden egg timer from the Art Nouveau period. It would be interesting to know what sort of house would have such a spectacular piece of art in their kitchen, as this would have been a very expensive item when made! The piece is carved in two pieces- the backboard to which the fretwork, with typical Art Nouveau whiplash and sinuous curves, has been attached. A very large glass egg timer fixed to a red metal arm with a small handle, swivels to allow the sands to run from one part of the timer to the other- the glass is marked with a scale: Hard, Medium and Soft. There is a handy metal hanger for wall display. This is certainly an egg timer with attitude!

Measuring 30 cms long x 13.5 cms at its widest point, it certainly will provide a focal point to any kitchen in which it finds itself! The item "RARE AND IMPRESSIVE GIANT ANTIQUE ART NOUVEAU CARVED WOODEN EGG TIMER" is in sale since Wednesday, May 22, 2019.
