Product Description

A nice example of an antique c1900 Tibetan pair of Mazer Bowls in very good condition.

The Mazers are carved out into a bowl-shaped piece of burr maple wood that has been clad on the inside surface, with a gilded silver skin and a silver collar on the foot base. The collar is decorated with a frieze of geometric shapes. The wood has a lovely mottled and striped grain, with a deep caramel colour, with nice patination. The 2 Mazers have the same decoration, but are of different sizes.

Mazers were a traditional drinking vessel used by Tibetan monks in monasteries. However, the Mazer Bowl has a much larger sphere of use, going from medieval England all the way to Eastern Asia. In Europe it is a small wooden drinking vessel, with various types of silver decoration around the inside and outside. It was originally designed for drinking in one cupped hand.

Size 1: 10.5 x 5.1 cm (4 1/8 x 2 inches)
Size 2: 14 x 6 cm (5 ½ x 2 3/8 inches)
