Here is an old turned wood pounce sifter or sander used in the 18th & 19th Centuries when letters and other documents were written with dip or quill pens. It was used to dust the wet ink and absorb any excess. This one has an untouched age darkened surface and incised lines around it. Top under edge has fine incised lines, a turned lip and chip carved or stamped geometric designs around it. Top is bowl shaped with incised lines in circular pattern . There is a circle of 9 holes around an arrangement of 5 holes with a larger central hole.. There is a chip on the edge. It is age darkened and looks to be made in the making and a couple of tiny chips as shown. The piece appears all hand carved and has nice form. Bottom of base has fine age crack. Sander has a more primitive form than most. It is 3" tall and 3" across top and base.
