Keris Jawa Solo Luk 3 Jangkung Mangkurat Selut Intan 0617.

Keris Jawa Solo Luk 3 Jangkung Mangkurat Selut Intan 0617 Another very good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Wrangka is in the gayaman Solo forms with the sheath made from a single piece of wood or seiras. The wooden hilt is having the extended ferrule or mendak selut having low grade diamonds or intans and rubies or delima. Bottom stem is encased with a plain brass stem cover exposing the middle section, thereby seeing the sheath made without any joints or seiras.

Rather rare blade with 3 waves or luks and having an overall shape or dapor called jangjung mangkurat. Part of the base is inlaid with gold in floral motifs.

Pamor patterns are condense and arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. The pamor is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

Condition: Ve
ry 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 mid to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19".

Price:- US$630 excluding shipping.
