I just recently bought an entire antique bowl collection from a good friend who has been collecting them from Nepal for over 30 years. This bowl is an exceptional quality bowl from the Tarvati region and is beleived to be 200 years old or more. I do not buy bowls to sell for their age, but this is simply an amazing quality bowl.
At some point during this bowls long lifetime, the "35" was written on the inside.
This bowl is 10 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches deep, and is hand hammered. Sings with an A tone, and a D tone when struck.
Weighs 4lb 4oz.
