Hand Carved Antique Jambati Singing Bowl G3 (Throat Chakra)

Weight 2.26 kilos (5 lb 0 oz).   Size 27.5 x 13 cm (10¾  x 5 inches)

 

This fabulous 11 ½-inch Antique Jambati Singing Bowl comes from Bangladesh and is a true work of art.  Virtually the entire outer surface has been exquisitely hand-carved with a beautiful geometric lotus motif, possibly based on a traditional carpet design.  I believe the carving of this bowl dates from the 19th century and it probably took the highly skilled artisan a month or more to complete the work. 

 

 

The fundamental struck note is an exceptionally pure and beautiful third octave G3 (192Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to a high C#5 (168Hz) when played with a wooden ringer.

 

 

This antique Jambati Singing Bowl has been superbly forged and is structurally sound and in excellent condition.  There are decorative circles at its centre. 

 

 

Carved Bangladeshi bowls are extremely rare and difficult to source, and always command a high price when available.  I managed to secure a few superb examples that will sell within days, so be quick if you are tempted.

 

A fabulous superior quality carved antique bowl with an exceptionally lovely G3 voice! 

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a ringer are included in the price.

 

Listen: ( 3 struck notes and 2 played notes with suede ringer then wood).
