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

Keris Jawa Timur Luk 9 Kayu Cendana 0320.

Keris Jawa Timur Luk 9 Kayu Cendana 0320 - Another good and rare example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions, with the fittings or  wrangka  in the gayaman branggah forms, with the top sheath made from very well selected sandal woods or kayu cendana, having a thick and well repoussed outer stem cover or pendok bunton.

Long and very sturdy blade, with 9 waves or luks, and well executed base features or perabots, having the picetan without any sogokans, the kembang kacang with jenggot, jalen, lambei gajah and the grenengs or fretworks. 

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlulah technique, and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. It is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

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 18th century blade, with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 15.5".   Overall length: 20.5".
