Weight 2.9 kilos (6 lb 6 oz). Size 28.5 x 12 cm (11 ¼ x 4 ¾ inches)
This large antique Jambati Singing Bowl has an excellent concert pitch third octave Eb fundamental (156Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.
This bowl has a substantial physical presence due to its large 11 ¼-inch diameter and a slightly lower than average profile, making it appear even bigger than it is. And at just under 3 kilos it’s a heavy bowl with thick walls that would have been a considerable challenge to forge. It has a grooved lip, circles at its centre, and decorative bands forming a collar around the outer rim.
This fabulous large antique Jambati Singing Bowl is believed to date from around 1800. It has a bright golden bronze colour, and is in excellent structural condition, clean and free of stains and blemishes.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker and ringer are all included in the price.
