Antique Bronze Ritual Bell with Peacock Top

Size: 7 ½ x 3 ¾ inches (19 x 9.5 cm). Weight: 1 lb 10 ¾ oz (758 grams)

 

This superb rare antique Ritual Bell or Ghanta has a peacock top with the tail feathers forming part of a finger ring for carrying, a very unusual feature on a hand bell. It was sourced in Nepal and dates from the 18th or 19th century. It was cast in bronze by the lost wax method and hand-finished, and is therefore totally unique. The rung note is a very nice sixth octave D (1171Hz) that is very close to perfect pitch. This is a beautifully made bell, heavy for its size, and in fabulous condition. It also has the lovely aged bronze colour and patina.

 

Originally belonging to a Hindu priest, temple, or shrine, antique bronze ritual hand bells of this type, quality, and condition are few and far between, and are highly prized by religious practitioners, shaman, yogis, healers and sound therapists, as well as serious collectors.

 

When you buy, handle, and ring this antique ritual bell you can be confident that it is a genuine and revered holy instrument that has played an important part in countless sacred rituals and ceremonies for at least 100 years. It is a fascinating and beautiful object in its own right, with the look and feel of antiquity…but perhaps more importantly, when it is rung one can sense the spiritual energy, power and purpose with which it is imbued, and the present ineffably connects to the past.

 

Listen to this bell.
