Pleasingly and thinly carved maple sander,measuring 2 3/4"wide and 3 " high.There is a snowflake design of holes in the center.Sanders were filled -this one from the top-with sand or powder and then shaken on paper to blot up the excess ink that was left from a quill pen.This sander has a bottom covered with old green felt.I did peel back some of the felt and saw a good patina.Condition: there is a small amount of roughness but not a crack along the edge of the bowl.There is also a small age crack along the base,as pictured.The color is truer on the second photo.
