4.75" Rare Antique Singing Bowl in E
1 In Stock
Genuine antique singing bowl, 2 mallets, 1 cushion. Joseph describes this singing bowl as an extremely rare early period small singing bowl with an amazing high pitch and subtle vibration. This type of bowl is among the earliest type and although it looks very clean it shows advanced signs of age including wear, minor oxidation and surface texture as well as the early construction methods not practiced for centuries. The circle and dot engravings are among the most prized and go back to the 9th century. The engravings show a lot of wear and are only partially visible. Highly collectable, this example has a very high shimmering tone and lovely warble. The extra thick shape makes the pitch go up into the higher octaves. The thick shape also makes it difficult to play around the rim and makes the tone decay more quickly, so it rings for under a minute when struck and can be played around the rim with wood only - not leather.
