Keris Jawa Jogja Lurus Banyu Tretes 0111.

Keris Jawa Jogja Lurus Banyu Tretes 0111 – Another very good and rather rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Jogjakarta. Fittings in the ladrangan jogja styles made from very well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. A brass ferrule or mendak and a well repoussed brass stem cover or pendok completes fittings.

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

Pmaor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique showing contouring as well as small circular formations called banyu tretes or dripping water. It is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 19th century.

Length of blade: 14.4".   Overall length: 19".
