Keris Jawa Luk 9 Sedayu 1220.

Keris Jawa Luk 9 Sedayu 1220 � A good old example of a keris from the central or eastern Javanese regions. Fittings in the gayaman Surakarta forms, has the top sheath made from well selected pelet woods, with naturally occurring contrasting grains, having the bottom stem encased with a thick brass stem cover or pendok blewah.

Very sturdy blade with 9 very sublime  luks or waves and well executed base features or perabots, having the attribution to the sedayu era.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the pamor kulit semagko or melon skin variations, which is said to enhance the owner's popularity.

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 17th century.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 19.5".
