Keris Bugis Riau Lingga Luk 7 Adeg 1214.

Keris Bugis Riau Lingga Luk 7 Adeg 1214 - Another very good example of a keris from the southern Sumatran region of Bugis Riau Lingga. Handle in the typical kerdas form, and the top sheath or sampir, are made from very well selected kemuning woods with natural flashing grains. The bottom stem is made from angsana wood with a well repoussed copper ferrule or pendoko to complete the fittings.

Very sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks, has well executed base features or perabots typical of the Bugis styles. having also a hexagonal cross section.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique, showing vertical lines called pamor adeg or standing pamor. The pamor is said to protect the owner in times of natural disasters.

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 early 19th century.

Length of blade: 13.1".   Overall length: 17".
