Keris Jawa Lurus Melati Rinonce 0111.

Keris Jawa Lurus Melati Rinonce 0111 – Another rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman solo styles are made from very well selected kemuning woods with the sheath made from a single piece of bored wood without any joints, or called seiras. Bottom stem is encased with a well repoussed, front open brass stem cover or pendok blewah.

Long and rather sturdy blade with plain base features and an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.

Pamor patterns are rare and are arranged in the miring technique showing jointed circles called melati rinonce or jasmine chain. It is said to enhance as well as popularize 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 late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14.3".   Overall length: 19.1".
