Keris Bali Luk 7 Ron Genduru 1214.

Keris Bali Luk 7 Ron Genduru 1214 - Vary good and rare example of a keris from the island of Bali or Lombok. Handle and sheath are in the Bali forms and are made from rare fragranced agar wood or kayu gahru. A brass mendak or ferrule studded with low grade gemstones completes fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with 7 meandering waves or luks and well executed and deep base features or perabots. The base cross piece or ganjar is also having floral motifs on the surface with minute remains of some gold inlaying works.

Pamor patterns are rare and are arranged in the miring technique called the ron genduru or coconut leaves. The pamor is said to enhance the owner's status.

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 century blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 18".   Overall length: 28".
