Keris Jawa Lurus Sungging Panca Warna.
Keris Jawa Lurus Sungging Panca Warna – A very good
and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions. Top sheath or
wrangka is in the ladrangan Surakarta styles and together with
the hilt, are made from woods and finely painted with figurines from the
wayang kulit or shadow puppets. This technique of painting is known as
sungging. Bottom stem is fully encased with a bronze stem cover or pendok
with wayang kulit or shadow puppets motifs. A granuled silver ferrule or
mendak completes fittings.
Very sturdy blade with rather plain base features that has only the picetan, has an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.
Pamor patterns are rare and are well arranged in the miring technique. They show very tight and condense pattern arrangements that have more than three different formations. Blades with more than 3 pamor patterns are termed panca warna, or multi colored. These pamors are said to enhance 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 20th century.
Length of blade: 15.5". Overall length: 20.8".
