Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. Note: A2 (Third Eye Chakra)

Weight 3.41 kilos (6 lb 15 oz).  Size 34 x 17 cm (13 ½ x 6 ¾ inches)


This superb and majestic antique Jambati Singing bowl dates from the 19th Century and has a huge diameter of 13 ½ inches, weighs 3.41 kilos, and is one of the largest antique Jambati Singing Bowls in my entire collection.  Antique Jambati bowls approaching anything like this size are extremely rare and sought after for their beautiful low resonant and powerful voices and long sustains.  This huge superior quality bowl was probably commissioned by or for a monastery or temple, where it would have served an important ceremonial purpose.



It has a fabulous and rare low second octave A2 (108Hz) fundamental when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  Subtle G#2 and E4 harmonics are sometimes present.  This is a heavy bowl that is best placed on a cushion for playing, and will be supplied with a large Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion.



This massive bowl has graceful and finely hammered walls that have been superbly crafted.  While the interior is smooth the subtle surface hammer marks to the outer wall reflect the light and are are particularly attractive.  It has a lovely full deep-bodied form (my personal favourite), smooth triangulated lip, decorative bands forming a collar around the outer rim, and circles at the centre.



It is in a fabulous state of preservation, structurally sound, clean and stain-free, with a slight smattering of copper oxidization adding surface interest. It has an attractive golden bronze colour.


This massive, ancient, and wonderful Jambati bowl is a unique treasure that would crown any collection! 


 A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and 2 ringers are all included in the price.
