Exhibition "Hourglasses of the Past" in 2015

We were very pleased to organize the exhibition "Hourglasses of the Past" which occurred in our gallery between the 7th and the 31st of October 2015.

 

Around 110 hourglasses between 15th and 19th centuries were exhibited.

 

Same as our exhibition on Pocket and table sundials in 2013/2014, it was the first time ever that an exhibition on sandglasses assembled such quantity and quality ones.

 

On this occasion, we published a reference book "Sabliers d'Autrefois, Hourglasses of the Past, Clessidre d'Altri tempi", written in French, English, Italian, 400 pages with numerous art pictures covering the exhibited items with features covering history, the making techniques and main hourglasses families, between others.
