Keris Lombok Luk 13 Kinatah Halus 0622.
Keris Bali Luk 13 Kinatah Halus 0622 � A
very good and rare example of a keris from the island of Bali. Finely made handle in the typical
style, is made of silver with the middle grip having woven twisted and
plain silverworks. The sheath is made from well selected woods
with tiger stripe grains having a dark wood bottom tip.
Long and sturdy blade with 13 meandering waves or luks, and very well executed base features or perabots, has an overall shape or dapor called sangkelat.
Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique showing a very condense formation of the pamor kulit semangko or melon skin pamor.
The base of the blade is finely gold inlaid using koftgari technique,
whereby a line is made of tiny smaller dots. At the top of the base cross piece
or ganjar, the inlaying includes a very minute silver flower at the tip
and beside the tang.
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 late 19th early 20th century.
Length of blade: 16". Overall length: 24.5".
