Keris Jawa Lurus Hujan Emas.

Keris Jawa Lurus Hujan Emas A very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese region of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman styles are made from well selected pellet woods with natural contrasting grains that occurs due to fungal attack on that particular part of the tree. A finely repoussed silver stem cover or pendok bunton has the repousse works both at the front and back. A thick silver ferrule or mendak completes fittings.

Thick and very sturdy straight blade, with rather plain base features or perabots, has an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.

Pamor pattern are rare and are arranged in the mlumah technique showing small circular formations called the pamor hujan emas or golden showers. The pamor is highly sought after for it is said to enhance the wealth of the owner.

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.

Length of blade: 15.2".   Overall length: 20.5".
