Keris Banjarmasin Lurus Pamor Miring 0622.

Keris Banjarmasin Lurus Pamor Miring 0622 � A very good and rare example of a keris from the southern Kalimantan region of Banjarmasin. Finely regpoussed handle in the typical Banjar jawa demam style,  is made of gilded brass. Top sheath is made from well selected ketengga woods with contrasting grains, having the bottom stem fully encased with well repoussed silver.

Straight or lurus blade with plain perabots or base features, has an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique showing a very rare formation of swirly patterns from the base till the top.

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 18th century.

Length of blade: 12.5".   Overall length: 18".
