Keris Jawa Lurus Simbang Kurung  0320.

Keris Jawa Lurus Simbang Kurung  0320 - Another very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions, with the fittings or  wrangka  in the gayaman Surakarta forms, made from a single piece of wood or seiras having a plain brass outer stem cover or pendok blewah, exposing the wood and showing that it is made from a single piece of wood without any joints.

Long and very sturdy, straight or lurus blade, with prominent spine and base features or perabots, having a picetan with cpmplete sogokans, and overall shape or dapor called jalak ngore.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice pamor, and having the a horizontal line pamor at the gandik called the pamor simbang kurung.
The pamor
wos utah is said to enhance the owner's material well being, while the pamor simbang kurung is rare and is said to enhance the owner's public profile and incomes.

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 early 18th century blade, with 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 18.5".
