More about this fine antique singing bowl: This is an unasumming singing bowl but it holds a secret perhaps only I would know. It is a transitional piece, between the ealier construction methods and the later, sharing elements of both. The engravings are worn down but they seem to have been the hashmark style of a later piece but with the deep incisions of an earlier bowl. The shape is likewise abruptly flat on the bottom like an earlier bowl but with a nice curve on the side like a later bowl. The lip likewise seems transitional, with some signs of the earlier folded lip technique but without the telltale bulk of real folding. While the whole history is not known, I think it was made by a master of bowlmaking who had done it long enough to see various forms tried. The resulting tone is excellent, very steady, nicely tuned, balanced and long ringing. Welcome to the largest and best antique singing bowl collection in the world.
