Description
This is a Beautiful Victorian Solid Silver Fluted Design Pounce Pot, this was Crafted by the Silversmiths Barker Brothers and was made in Birmingham 1898 making it 122 years old, the Victorian Solid Silver Pounce Pot has the most Stunning Design to it with Arabic Temple look to it, starting with the Round Base, having a Fluted Design all round the Base. It then rises up to the Bulbous Middle that also has the Fluted Design all around, the neck above narrows and has lovely Scroll Designs. The Lid on this Pounce Pot pulls off and pushes back on, it is a Bulbous Dome Shape with the same Fluted Design and has a Ball Finial to the Top. There are many Holes in the Lid for the pounce to be used on drying the Ink, The pounce or sand is gently sprinkled all over the writing on the paper. When using a quill or a steel nib, and with inks that are made up to match those typically in use during the 18th or 19th centuries, and provided the pen has been used with the fine strokes typical of handwriting of that period, the handwriting will be sufficiently dry within 10 seconds to allow the paper to be folded without blotting. Gently vibrating the paper whilst the pounce or sand is on it ensures that little or no pounce or sand sticks to the handwriting and excess sand or pounce is shaken off before folding the paper.it is fully Hallmarked on each section of the neck of the Pounce Pot, this would have been used by someone Wealthy back in the Victorian Period, when times were very different to today, it has a Stunning Unique look and Shape and is in lovely condition with just a few minor dings, this would add something special to any Collection
