Weight 2 lb 3 ½ oz. (1.01 kilos). Size 18.5 x 9 cm (7 ¼ x 3 ½ inches)
This antique Thadobati Singing Bowl has a third octave B fundamental (245Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a powerful fifth octave F (696Hz) if a wooden ringer is employed.
This bowl epitomizes the Thadobati form with its fairly straight side, sheered lip, and flat bottom. There are circles at its centre and a decorative band of suns (punched dot inside a circle) around the outer rim, often seen on older bowls of this type. It is in good structural condition, and has the look and feel of antiquity.
A Tibetan silk brocade cushion and a ringer are included in the price.
