Massively huge Dark Bronze Japanese Temple Bell Bowl, with ridged edges along its rim and raised, scale-like pattern around its bottom. . Japanese Temple Bell Bowl was used during chanting, or as an indication of a change in time or activity. This is truly the largest bell bowl I have ever seen. Three stamped kanji characters “Kin Ryu ____?” on rim translates as Golden Dragon _____? (last one is illegible). Excellent condition and sound.
It’s extraordinary size: 17.25″ height, 20.25″ width
