Keris Jawa Lurus Brodjol Pelet Kendit 0811.

Keris Jawa Lurus Brodjol Pelet Kendit 0811 – Very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Solo style with the hilt made from hard tayuman woods and top sheath or wrangka made from pelet kendit ;- sought after for its dark grain running along the middle. Bottom stem is fully encased with thick silver with fine floral motifs.

Long, thick and very sturdy straight blade with a rather broad mid section and an overall shape or dapor called brodjol.

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin variation which is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.
The shape or dapor also has mystical reference to assist in birth, and appropriate for a mid wife’s keris.

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 18th century blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 20.5".
