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

Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 7 Ujung Gunung 0820.

Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 7 Ujung Gunung 0820- Another very good example of a keris from the southern Malaysian peninsular region of Johore or Selangor. Handle in the pistol grip or kerdas form is made from very well selected kemuning woods with naturally occurring tiger's stripe grains. The top sheath in the tebeng form is made from very well selected ketengga woods with natural contrasting grains. Bottom stem is made from well selected angsana woods with a thick and well repossed brass pendoko or ferrule to complete fittings.

Very sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks, with base features or perabots having strong Bugis influence as well as the flat surface and angled edge called gusen, making it having a hexagonal cross section.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, having a peak like formation at the base called ujung gunung or mountain peak, which is said to enhance the owner’s status and 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 19th century.

Length of blade: 13.5".   Overall length: 17.5".

Price:- US$600 excluding shipping.
