Keris Bali Lurus Kebo Teki 1118.

Keris Bali Lurus Kebo Teki 1118 - Another very rare example of a very long keris from the island of Bali or Lombok. Handle and sheath or wrangka in the typical Balinese gayaman form, are made from pelet woods, with natural contrasting grains and is fully encased with well repoussed silver alloy outer cover.

Long and sturdy blade, with well executed perabots or base features, has the elongated gandik called kebo teki using one kembang kacang or elephant trunk like feature. It has an overall shape or dapor called kebo teki.

Pamor pattern are arranged in the mlumah technique, of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin. The pamor kulit semangko is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 mid to late 19th century, with 20th century silver alloy encasement.

Length of blade: 18".   Overall length: 27.5".

Price:- US$870 excluding shipping.
