Pounce Pot Sander Lobed 13 Loth German 1790

German 13 loth or 813 standard silver Pounce Pot or sander, marked under the foot of the rim for Augsburg and 13 Loth. The marks are partially rubbed.

The 8 lobed baluster body has a tight fitting conforming lid with an Acanthus leaf finial and an intricately pierced and engraved removable screen. The body sits on a conforming pedestal base.

Weighing 49 grams, this very special pounce pot is 3 3/4" tall and 2" in diameter.

Pouncing with ground cuttlefish or chalk hastened the drying of the ink and helped stabilize the pen stroke at the same time.
