For sale is an 8 cm (3 1/8 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. There are some fine scratches on the top and bottom which do not detract from the piece. There are also some round marks on the inside of the hourglass which you can see in the photos. In my opinion they do not detract significantly from the piece. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
