Keris Lurus Jawa Seiras Ladrangan pelet. 

Keris Lurus Jawa Seiras Ladrangan Pelet Of central Javanese in origin, with the fittings in the ladrangan styles with the bondolan form hilt, all made of well selected pelet wood. Bottom stem encased with plain brass pendok blewah. Brass ferrule or mendak completes fittings.

Straight and sturdy blade with prominent spine and rather plain base features also has the cross piece made together with the blade or ganjar seiras. Pattern welded blade with pamor arranged in the mlumah technique, and are of the  wos utah or scattered rice patterns. It is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

Condition: Good condition, with minor restoration patchings and relative age wears.

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 18th century blade, with middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 12.2".   Overall length: 18".
