For sale is a 5 cm (2 inch) cube acrylic hourglass designed by Tapio Wirkkala and produced in the 1960s. It was commissioned by Mannerheimin Lastensuojelulitto and is marked Lapselle (for a child). It is in very nice shape for being around a half a century old and makes a great desk accessory. It does have some light scratching on the top and bottom which is to be expected for something of its age. There are a couple of dings on one edge of the cube which you can see in the photos. There is also a small fracture near the top which I have captured in the photo. I have come across a number of these and I have never seen a flawless one, but this one displays very nicely. I will get back to you as soon as possible. The item “Rare Mid Century Modern Tapio Wirkkala Hourglass Acrylic / Lucite Finland” is in sale since Sunday, October 4, 2020.
