Keris Jawa Timur Luk 9 Dwi Warna 0416
- A very ggood and rather rare example of a keris
from the eastern Javanese regions. Finely carved hilt in the Javanese
Rajamala planner style having a figurine at the top half, is made from
hard woods called tayuman. Sheath or wrangka is in the gayaman
form and is made from very well selected pelet woods with naturally
occurring contrasting grains.
Long and very sturdy blade with 9 waves or luks, has the base features or perabots which is rather complete and well executed.
Pamor patterns are rare and are arranged in the miring technique, having a central vertical pamor patterns called sada saler, with a circumference pattern called pamor wengkon untuk walang, or grasshopper's teeth. With two types of pamor in one blade, it is also called dwi-warna or bi-colored.
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 mid to late 19th century blade, with restored 19th century sheath.
