Antique Tibetan Singing Bowl Engraved Gong Praying Buddha 7 7/8 Inscribed dated
This Listing is for an Antique Tibetan Engraved Singing Bowl / Gong , which its previous owner had indicated that it is an Antique Thai / Siam Singing bowl , White Brass / Copper (not sure of metal and best guesses would be white brass and copper) Finely Engraved , with a motif of Praying Buddha and an arabesque floral motif repeating on the exterior (praying buddha 4 times and floral arabesque 5 times) , weighing 942 grams net , measuring about 7 7/8 inches widest in diameter and 4 1/4 inches tall , Signed and Inscribed in English and I guess nepalese , " C H & M K Black" and two other lines under it , one with 14 X. Where X's are again I guess Tibetan alphabet. If you can see the writings on 2nd and third lines and if you know what it says , please let me know. If you know how to read Tibetan and cannot see it in images and need additional images to see the Tibetan writings, let me know and I will try to better photograph the writings. It is in very good General Antique condition with stains and wear and patina and what amounts to a like a crack extending about 1 inches in the mid part of the bowl as shown.
Engraving is very fine and at surface as shown. Designs and inscription kind of hard to see. If you know the specific purpose of this bowl , please let me know. The numerical engraving at base suggests that it is from 1927 or perhaps 1827? Images are continuous and have an order front , back, sides, etc..
and should be viewed in continuous fashion. There are a total of 18 images of this item posted within the description part of this listing. Make sure you see them all.
