Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl – Eb4 and A5 (Solar Plexus & THIRD EYE Chakras)
Weight 1.32 kilos (2 lb 14 ½ oz) 8 x 4 inches (20 x 10 cm)
A large, heavy, and extra-thick antique Thadobati Singing Bowl of considerable quality, and with one of the most powerful rim notes I’ve come across in over 25 years of collecting!
The struck note is a good mid octave Eb that can be very close to concert pitch depending upon the type of striker employed. However, the rim note is quite breathtaking! A heavy suede ringer brings forth the most powerful, piercing, and penetrating fifth octave ‘A’ imaginable…with a pronounced beat and long sustain!
This lovely old 19th century bowl has seen a lot of use over the years and most of its original decorative features have been worn smooth with the passage of time and are now barely visible, including the grooved lip and circles at the centre.
Its structural condition is excellent, and the bowl is essentially a clean golden bronze…the outside being particularly nice. There is some light surface tarnishing to the floor that can probably be removed with a little effort if desired.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
