Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 15 0217.

Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 15 0217 - A very good and rare of a keris from the southern Malaysian peninsular region. Handle in the typical jawa demam form, and top sheath in the typical Bugis tebeng forms, are made of very well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains. The bottom stem is made of angsena woods with a well carved thick brass pendoko or ferrule to complete.

Long and very sturdy blade with 15 waves and well executed perabots or base features, with prominent spine and fullers flanking.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, which 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 mid to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 16".   Overall length: 19".

Price:- US$1,100 excluding shipping.
