Keris Bali Lurus Pelet Tebal.

Keris Bali Lurus Pelet Tebal A very good example of a keris from the island of Bali with the handle and sheath made from well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. A brass ferrule or mendak studded with red garnet (couple missing) stones completes fittings.

Very long and very sturdy straight blade with thick prominent spine and deep base features or  perabots or base features that are very well executed in the typical Balinese styles.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are concentrated in the middle of the blade, and are called wiji timun or cucumber seeds.

Condition: Very g
ood 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 early 19th century.

Length of blade: 18.8".   Overall length: 25".
