Capture a moment, preserve your memories, and create a family heirloom with this stunning Vermont Soapstone and Mahogany Heirloom Hourglass inspired by New England, a region steeped in history, heritage, culture, and natural beauty. Splendor abounds from the gold coast of Connecticut to the majestic lighthouses of Maine, and The New England Wedding is a tribute to the rich nautical history and cultural diversity of this charming region. Whether your travels take you to the Green Mountains of Vermont, the shores of Cape Cod, the Ocean State of Rhode Island, the coastal gems of Maine, the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, or the Mystic Seaport of Connecticut, you will surely make some once in a lifetime moments. The New England can be filled with the sands or soils you collect from these places, making this handcrafted beauty a treasured keepsake that will become a focal point wherever you display it. In keeping with the New England tradition of craftsmanship, we create this hourglass for you with care from the finest materials: soapstone, mahogany, solid pewter, and hand blown glass. The soapstone bases display a striking shade of steel blue highlighted by shimmering flecks of quartz, and the blue gray hues of the stone combine with the deep red burgundy wood grains of the mahogany pillars for a color palette of true New England style. Light reflects richly from the sweeping curves of the rope shaped pillars, creating a dramatic aura of tradition and elegance. The fine pewter ship wheel serves as a tribute to the nautical heritage of the New England region.
