This copper bowl is used in Tantric worship for bathing a deity and as a receptacle for various devotional offerings. Many devotees expressed regret that they could not find this type of bowl in America, so we searched Calcutta and its surrounding villages until we found a source for these high quality puja implements. Hand made from pure copper by Bengali artisans. About 7″ in diameter.  We sell this bowl as we bought it: unpolished.  With a bit of effort and the help of copper polish, one achieves a shine as shown in the picture.
