Keris Jawa Jogja Luk 11 Pogokan

Keris Jawa Jogja Luk 11 Pogokan - Another very good example of a keris from central Javanese regions of Jogjakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Jogja styles with the handle made of tayuman woods with flashing grains, and the top sheath or wrangka made from very well selected pelet woods with naturally occurring contrasting grains. Bottom stem is fully encased with well repoussed brass stem cover or pendok bunton with a brass ferrule or mendak having colored glass insertions, to complete fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with 11 waves or luks and a prominent spine has well executed and deep base features or perabots that uses the kembang kacang pogokan instead of the usual kembang kacang or elephant’s trunk like features.

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 middle 18th century with mid 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13.6".   Overall length: 19.6".
