Tartan Ware Egg Timer, C.1880
A wonderful Scottish tartan egg timer. This is a beautiful and amazing kitchen object to have survived from the 1880's. This tartan ware egg timer is 3 1/4" high, and measures 2" across. There are three columns to guard the glass container with the very fine `sand'. The columns are covered in the tartan plaid and are the octagon shaped base's. . ( Someone guarded this over time to keep this wonderful 3 minute timer in great condition). Pattern may be that of the MacKenzie clan.
