Keris Jawa Timur Naga Siluman 0711.
Keris Jawa Timur Naga Siluman 0711 – Very rare
example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions of Jawa Timur.
Handle in the less common bulging bebondolan form, and top sheath or
wrangka in the ladrangan branggah styles, are made from rare and
highly sought after pelet timoho woods with many shades of natural
contrasting colors that occurs due to fungal attack, which has mystical
Long, thick and very sturdy blade having the rare Naga Siluman or disappearing dragon at the base, and also the rare wavy base cross piece or ganjar wilut. A thick prominent spine acting as the Naga’s body has the scale of the dragon present at the base but disappears at the top;- the characteristics of the disappearing Naga which is said to be able to make the owner invisible during times of uncertainty or chaos.
The mouth of the Naga has a small gold ball inset which is also commonly seen in many other Naga, and is called the geliga emas or golden “amulet”.
Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variation, concentrating the patterns only on the thick spine. The pamor is said to enhance the owner’s material well being, while the Naga Siluman is meant for high status wear.
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 blade with late 19th century fittings.
Length of blade: 14". Overall length: 18.5".
