I've seen tombac bowls like that but actually the designs are often quite different. A more common design is a huge diameter ceramic or clay bowl that is very shallow with a few large holes. My photo album has mine in it. Some times they have very high sides with a wire mesh to hold the leaf in place (usually you see that in India) and occasionally you'll see more elaborate cast brass tombac bowls.
