This brass ink sander/pounce pot is so unusual due to its gargoyle handle and tree trunk base. The sander measures 5" tall, and the oval base is 2-5/8 " long x 1-5/8 " wide. The sander was used to sprinkle powder on a letter etc, to dry the ink. Powder/sand was put in the two hemisphere pots and the pots were then screwed into the base. Excellent condition with areas of tarnish. A unique desk item from before the turn of the .century.
