Keris Madura Luk 13 Donoriko 1220 � A good and rare example of a keris from the island of Madura, eastern Java. Finely carved hilt in the "donoriko" form, is made from buffalo bone, with the sheath in the sandang walikat from, and made from a single piece of wood, or seiras. having a silver ferrule or pendoko completing the fittings

Long and very sturdy blade with 13 luks or waves, and base features or perabots rather complete, with and overall shape or dapor called sangkelat.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the pamor kulit semagko or melon skin variations, which 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 blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 16".   Overall length: 23".
