Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

THE con­sen­sus from read­ers was that last week’s item was a pounce pot.

Pounce is a fine pow­der made from cut­tle­fish bone, it was used to dry ink when writ­ing with a quill. Some sug­gested sand rather than cut­tle­fish but for the same pur­pose.

Anne-Marie Phiĺlips was the first reader with this an­swer fol­lowed by a ton of oth­ers in­clud­ing Keith Brown, Co­ral Brady, Jenny Barnard, Stew Ed­wards, Willem Halm, Ann Rick­etts, Tom Grif­fiths, Ste­wart Ross, Pa­tri­cia McCauley, Peter Hill and Sue Ad­der­ley.

The next most com­mon sug­ges­tions were a nut­meg grater or a smelling salts’ dis­penser.
