Keris Jawa Tengah Lurus Sinom Blarak Ngirid 0215.

Keris Jawa Tengah Lurus Sinom Blarak Ngirid 0215 - A very good and rare example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions. Top sheath and hilt in the gayaman Solo styles are made from hard teak woods with good grains. The bottom stem or gandar is encased with well repoussed brass stem cover or pendok bunton.

Long and very sturdy blade with prominent spine and is straight or lurus. Base features or perabots are well executed using the kembang kacang having jenggots and lambei gajah, with the picetan and complete sogokans, including the fretworks or grenengs. The overall shape or dapor is called sinom in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are rare, and are arranged in the miring technique and of blarak ngirid or coconut eaves variations and is 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 19th early 20th century.

Length of blade: 14.5".   Overall length: 20.2".
