MALAY ART GALLERY'S....House of  Keris

Keris Jawa Timur Dapur Sepang 0522.

Keris Jawa Timur Dapur Sepang  0422 - A good and rare example of a status keris from the eastern Javanese regions of Jawa Timur. Fittings in the gayaman forms are made from very well selected hard and heavy pelet woods, with naturally occurring contrasting grains. A silver ferrule or mendak complete the fittings.

Very sturdy, thick and heavy blade with a lurus or straight profile having the rare base features or perabots, using only the aring or pointy ends, without the gandik or blunt side. This rare symmetrical base form is called dapor sepang.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon skin variations, which is said to enhance the owner's popularity.

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 18th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 21".
