An early form singing bowl, extremely rare with only a few dozen of this type in existence. This particular example shows only minor signs of advanced age including minor pitting and small areas of deep oxidation. Most bowls of this type are considerably darker, with extremely deep color which this bowl shows in only a few small areas. Overall it is in remarkably excellent condition with minimal wear. My age estimate is wide ranging, considering the early form (older) as well as the light wear (possibly younger). The tone is warm and mellow as only the very old bowls sound, with a heartbeat pulse and slightly muffled tone caused by the aging process. One of only 3 of this type I have ever sold and for sale now because it is a duplicate of another in the Singing Bowl Museum.
