Keris Jawa Luk 7 Jaran Guyang 0722.

Keris Jawa Luk 7 Jaran Guyang 0722A very good example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions of Jawa Timur. Fittings in the ladrangan forms are made from very well selected woods having the bottom stem encased with a well repoussed brass pendok.

Sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks and very well executed base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called jaran guyang.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the pamor kulit semangko or melon skin pamor, with interesting metal combination that shows certain "crystallize" layers called pamor sanak in Javanese or pamor "miang" in Malay.

Condition: Very good condition. (Cracked top sheath well restored)

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 to middle 18th century.

Length of blade: 13".   Overall length: 19.5".
