Here is silver pouncer pot or sander. The pouncer pot function is to sprinkle powder which are useful for 1) making the paper smoother for ink writing and 2) drying the ink.
There is hallmark for Birmingham silver year 1905-1906 (with letter f). There is also a lovely inscription “To Father 1881-1906 From Grace”. It is a nice human touch history.
I bought this item from an antique fair in Sarratt Village Hall. I also bought a Victorian silver spoon. Please see it on my other post. Thank you for reading!
