STONE BOWL 1
6" high x 11.5" diameter
9 lbs. 14 oz. / 4.5 kgs.
This wonderfully carved stone bowl has not been vetted and we know almost nothing about it. Being broken and repaired does not prove age.
The only similar bowls we have found are from Afganistan and from antiquity. The bottoms are not flat so, if you are not placing them on a soft dirt floor or on a fire bed, we will provide a black ring on which they can rest.
This bowl appears to have repaired damage on the bottom (repaired with a large iron staple) and around the widest part (repaired with two large iron staples).
