Antique Singing Bowl.  Notes: A3 & Eb5 (Third Eye & Solar Plexus Chakras)
Weight 1.14 kilos (2 lb 8 ¼ oz).   Size 18.5 x 10 cm (7 ¼ x 4 inches)

 

This characterful 18th Century bell-shaped singing bowl has an excellent and rare A3 fundamental (224Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a nice fifth octave Eb5 (624Hz) with a wooden ringer.  It is very responsive and easy to play.

 

  

This old bowl has quite thick and tall walls, a sheared lip, circles at the centre, and a flat bottom.  It was clearly a challenge to forge and the subtle irregularities to its form add enormously to its character. 

 

 

The structural condition of this antique bowl is excellent, clean and stain-free. Its deep golden bronze colour and aged patina endow it with the look and feel of antiquity.

 

Antique bell-shaped bowls have a distinctive voice and are very uncommon, with perhaps one in several thousand possessing this form. 

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
