Weight 3.01 kilos (6 lb 12 ¼ oz). Size 31.5 x 15 cm (Approx. 12 ¼ x 6 inches)
This large Antique Jambati Singing Bowl has an excellent low second octave B fundamental (120Hz) when struck with a padded mallet that gradually moves to a middle F# (378Hz) when played around the rim with a suede ringer.
It is a well-forged and nicely proportioned deep-bodied Jambati with a triangulated lip, incised bands forming a decorative collar around the outer rim, and concentric circles at its centre. Its finely hammered walls reflect the light and are a particularly attractive feature.
It has a bright golden bronze colour and is in excellent structural condition, beautifully clean on the outside, with some light copper oxidization on the inside.
Antique Jambati bowls of this size and quality are now few and far between.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker and a ringer are all included in the price.
