Keris Bugis Sulawesi Lurus Sepokal Toli-Toli Perak 0123.

Keris Bugis Sulawesi Lurus Sepokal Toli-Toli Perak 0123 -A very fine and rare  example of a keris from the southern Sulawesi regions of Bugis. Handle in the kerdas or pistol grip form, and the top sheath in the square tebeng form, having the handle fully encased with fine filigree silver  studded with zircons. The top sheath is made from well selected kemuning woods, with a silver loop at the front called the called the toli-toli, which is studded with red sapphires and green stones.

Very sturdy straight blade but with and arcing profile and minimal base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called sepokal in Malay.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique with a peak formation at the base called ujung gunung, and above it are pamor kulit semangko or melon skin pamor. With two pamor patterns it is also called dwi warna or bi colored.

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 middle 19th century blade and sheath, with 20th century silver works.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- US$1,100 excluding shipping.
