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

Keris Bali Luk 13 Kembang Kacang Pogokan 0522.

Keris Bali Luk 13 Kembang Kacang Pogokan 0522 - A very good and rare example of a keris from the island of Bali. Fittings in the typical Balinese gayaman forms, and made from very well selected pelt woods with naturally occurring contrasting grains, that occur due to fungal attack. A silver ferrule or ewer studded with semi precious stones, competes the fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with 13 waves or luks and a prominent spine or ada-ada, having very well executed base features or perabots, with the base having the less common kembang kacang pogokan, instead of the usual elephant trunk like feature.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, which is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

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 middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 18.5".   Overall length: 25.5".


Price:- US$480 excluding shipping.
