Japanese Buddhist Altar Fitting Orin Bell
This is a vintage Japanese orin bell for Buddhist altars. It contains a bronze bowl with a dark brown wooden striker. It rests on a red and gold silk flower-shaped pillow with a gold tassel. Singing bowls are sounded during ritual prayer. Orin bell sound can reach the Buddha in the Pure Land. It is also used to ward off people's evil spirits and convey prayers to the Buddha, ancestors, and the deceased through sound.
Good condition. Some discoloration inside bell and metal has oxidized in a small area. Stains on pillow. Wear and tear due to age. Please see the photos carefully.
Acquired at an estate sale of an old Japanese family in Nagoya, Japan
