About this object

Pair of large cymbals, made from bell metal, with padded handloops. The cymbals come in a domed travelling case, which is covered with a black lacquered canvas, with well made brass mounts. The double and single dorje mounts are pinned to a series of copper bands that radiate from the top of the dome. A cloth and leather cushion is also present that protects the cymbals from each other.
