Keris Jawa Jogja Luk11 Liman Pendok Perak 0514

Keris Jawa Jogja Luk11 Liman Pendok Perak 0514 - A very good and rare example of keris from the central Javanese regions of Jogjakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Jogja forms are made from very well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. Bottom stem is of wood and is fully encased with finely reposed silver stem cover or pendok. A finely granulated silver ferrule or mendak completes fittings.
 
 Very sturdy blade with 11 meandering waves or luks having very well executed and minute base features or perabots that has the profile of an elephant at the gandik.
 
 Pamor pattern are rare and only concentrated at the bottom half of the blade. This arrangements is called liman (Javanese), and the darker metals also has a bluish tint that suggest the use of the sought after besi malela(?).

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 19th century blade with 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13".   Overall length: 18.5".
