Keris Jawa Lurus Sinom 1220

Keris Jawa Lurus Sinom 1220 A fine example of a keris from the central Javanese region of Jogjakarta. The hilt is typical of the region, and is made from very well selected  ebony woods with stress grains, having a silver ferrule or mendak studded with intans. Top sheath or wrangka is in the ladrangan Jogja styles and is made from very well selected pelet woods with naturally occurring contrasting grains. Wooden bottom stem is fully encased with finely repossed silver with animal and floral motifs.

Thick and very sturdy straight or lurus blade very well executed base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called sinom in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are very condense, and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the pamor wos utah or scattered rice variation, 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 late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 18.75".

Price:- US$980 excluding shipping.
