Keris Bugis Sulawesi Luk 7 Patrem
0916 - Another good example of a rather short
keris from the southern Sulawesi region of Bugis. Handle in the kerdas or
pistol grip form is made of kemuning woods having floral carving at the
back. Top sheath is also made from well selected kemuning woods, with the
bottom stem encased fully with thick well repoussed silver.
The short nature of the blade can strongly suggest the keris made for a boy, coming from a noble family. With 7 waves and well executed base features or perabots, angled edges or gusen, with a hexagonal cross section;- typical Bugis characteristic.
Pamor pattern are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, which is said to enhance the owner's material well being
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 18th century blade, with restored 19th century fittings.
Length of blade: 10". Overall length: 15".
