Keris Bali Lombok Luk 9 Ganjar Seiras Uler Lulut.

Keris Bali Lombok Luk 9 Ganjar Seiras Uler Lulut – A very good and rare example of a  keris from the island of Bali or Lombok. Fittings in the typical gayaman Bali/Lombok styles are made from very well selected pellet woods with natural contrasting grains. A granulated silver ferrule or mendak studded with low grade rubies completes fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with 9 meandering luks or waves has the base features or perabots using the unusual kembang kacang resembling a bird rather than an elephant’s profile. The base cross piece or ganjar is made one with the blade, and is called ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique and shows circular formations along the middle of the blade called pamor uler lulut, or snakeskin pamor. The pamor is said to enhance the owner's stature.

Condition:
Very good condition
. Aside from minor edge wears, rest is all in 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 late 19th century with new silver ferrule or mendak.

Length of blade: 17.4".   Overall length: 26".
