Keris Jawa Luk 11 Blarak Ngirid.
Keris Jawa Luk 11 Blarak Ngirid – A very good and
rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions. Top sheath or
wrangka is in the gayaman Surakarta styles and together with
the hilt, are made from well selected pellet woods that has naturally occurring
contrasting grains. Bottom stem is fully encased with gold plated brass stem
cover or pendok. A gold brass ferrule or mendak completes
Long and very sturdy blade with 11 meandering waves or luks and a prominent spine has the base features that includes the elephant’s trunk or kembang kacang and other smaller features or perabots are also well executed.
Pamor patterns are rare and are well arranged in the miring technique. They are of the blarak ngirid or coconut leaves variations, and is said to enhance the owner’s status.
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 20th century blade with late 20th century fittings.
Length of blade: 15.5". Overall length: 20.8".
