Weight 1.82 kilos (4 lb 0 oz). Size 28.5 x 13.5 (11 ¼ x 5 ¼ inches)
This is a glorious large 11 ¼” Superior Quality Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with a powerful pulsating third octave C#3 fundamental (141Hz) with a long sustain when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer, and a middle A4 (436Hz) when played with a wooden one.
This stunning bowl has a really lovely full-bodied form. Its finely beaten walls, now worn sensually smooth with the passage of time, makes it relatively light for its size and therefore comfortable to hold and play for an extended period. It has a smooth and slightly inward-facing triangulated lip, with decorative bands encircling the outer rim and circles at the centre.
It is exceptionally clean and stain-free despite its antiquity, and with its light golden bronze colour is one of the prettiest bowls I’ve seen. It is structurally sound save for a small, shallow, and barely noticeable dent below the rim, which is reflected in the price reduction.
A very desirable antique singing bowl that would grace any collection!
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, padded striker, and 2 ringers are all included in the price.
Listen: (3 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede ringer then wood)
