Large Rare Antique Mani Singing Bowl – Eb5 Note

Availability: In Stock
Price: £0.00

Rare 16th – 18th Century Tibetan Mani Singing Bowl.  E Note (Solar Plexus Chakra)
Weight 3 lb 9 ¾ oz (1.64 Kilos).   19.5 x 10 cm (approx. 7 ¾ x 4 inches)


This is good example of a large antique Mani or Charma singing bowl.  These heavy old bowls are characterized by their flat bottoms, bulbous bellies with thick inward sloping walls, and generous lips.  They have the classic begging-bowl shape, and date from the 16th to 18th century when they ceased to be made.


Antique Mani Singing BowlThis large size bowl has the typical Mani form.  It is well made, with smooth outer walls, a wide, bold, level and grooved lip, and typical Mani decoration in the form of simple engraved bands just below the outer rim, around the belly, and some bold concentric circles on the inside floor.  This Mani bowl is in good clean condition for its age (200 – 400 years) and virtually free of stains and blemishes.


Mani or Charma bowls are self-amplifying and extremely easy to play.  This one sings a lovely fifth octave Eb note whether struck with a mallet or played around the rim with a wooden ringer.  A double-ended teak and suede striker/ringer is included in the price.


Listen: (2 struck notes and 2 played notes)
