Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl. Note: G#3 & D5 (Throat & Sacral Chakras)

Weight 736 grams (1 lb 10 oz).  Size 20 x 7 cm (8 x 2 ¾ inches)

 

This is a nice quality large antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an excellent third octave G#3 (210Hz) fundamental when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to an equally nice fifth octave D5 (601Hz) with a wooden ringer. 

 

 

This old bowl is believed to date from the mid 1800s and has seen lot of use over the years.  Its grooved lip and walls have been worn sensually smooth, the circles at its centre have long since vanished, and the multiple bands that decorate the outer rim are now quite faint.  However, it remains a really lovely bowl…physically attractive, clean, nice to hold and play, and structurally sound.  It also has a lovely bright golden bronze colour.

 

 

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