Keris Jawa Luk 13 Kelingan Ladrangan.

Keris Jawa Luk 13 Kelingan Ladrangan – A very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings or wrangka is in the ladrangan Solo form and is made from well selected hard woods with natural tight grains. Bottom stem is encased with a finely repoussed brass stem cover or pendok bunton .

Very sturdy blade with 13 meandering waves or luks,a nd a thick prominent spine with well executed base features or perabots . It has an overall shape or dapor called sangkelat. 

 
Pamor patterns are not contrasting and using non nickel pamor metals, are arranged in the mlumah technique and are of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin variation. It is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 blade with mid 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 14.5".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- US$400 excluding shipping.
