Antique Malay Silver Bowl (mangkuk Jerelok), Malaysia – Early 19th Century

Product Description

This very fine Malay silver bowl, also known as a mangkuk jerelok, is a large multi-purpose bowl which was used to hold pot pourri, fruit etcetera and was sometimes used as a lustration vessel; holding the holy water during the ritual lustration rites for a Malay bride and groom.  This bowl has been made from high grade silver of a good gauge.  The design is unusual and the craftsmanship is of fine quality, suggesting it was made during the early nineteenth century.  

The silversmith has paid great attention to detail.  The wide repousse and chased foliate border below the rolled rim is particularly fine and features scrolling ferns or awan kalok paku pattern, the stylised foliage is sharply defined and set against a punched ground.  The panel is contained within fine rope borders to top and bottom.  The silver in the twenty-four panels below has been handled with the greatest delicacy; it has been gently fluted and fashioned so that each panel resembles the petal of a lotus flower and the borders are defined so that it appears separate from neighbouring petals.

The bowl is supported by a deep cylindrical plain silver pedestal foot which raises the bowl up from the surface it has been placed upon and serves to show off the floriform design to best effect; or so it appears.  When one actually looks inside the bowl, the central part of the bottom of the bowl steps down again to a lower level, with a well at the bottom sunken which extends part way down the inside of the ‘pedestal’. (This stepped arrangement almost resembles the design of a traditional soup plate when viewed from above.)  So, in reality, the true pedestal is only very small.  This is a highly unusual feature which we have not seen in any silver bowl before.
