Pounce is a fine powder made from pine resin or cutlefih bone, that was sprinkled over wet ink to hasten the drying process and was in use from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century, prior to the invention of blotting paper. The pounce was usually kept in a pounce pot, a small container in wood, silver or ceramics, kept on a desk, similar to a salt shaker.
