MALAY ART GALLERY'S....House of  Keris

Ulu Lampung Sumatra Kemuning Wood 0117.

Ulu Lampung Sumatra Kemuning Wood 0117 - A very rare example of a keris hilt from the Sumatran region of Lampung. Made of hard kemuning woods, it is well carved in a bird like form very unique to the region. Although the top half does resemble a bird, the bottom half shows legs in a squatting position with the hugging arms and fingers.

Condition: Very good condition.

Age:  Krises are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece, from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the early to mid. 19th century.

Dimensions: Please see top left hand corner picture.

Price:- US$255 excluding shipping.
