Keris Melayu Luk 3 Ganjar Seiras 0620.

Keris Melayu Luk 3 Ganjar Seiras 0620 Very good and rather rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Kelantan or Kedah. Finely carved handle in the jawa demam form and top sheath in the tebeng forms, are made from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains. Bottom stem is made from angsana woods with a thick brass ferrule or pendoko to complete fittings.

Very long  blade with 3 waves or luks and rather pain base features or perabots, with the rare base cross piece made one with the blade or ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the blumah technique of the wos utah or standing 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 early 19th century.

Length of blade: 15.5".   Overall length: 19".

Price:- US$450excluding shipping.
