Keris Melayu Patani Luk 9 Pamor
Sumber 0114 - Very good and rare example of a
keris from the Malaysian peninsular regions of Johore or Selangor. With strong
Bugis influences and roots, the handle is in the typical Bugis pistol grip or
kerdas form, and together with the top sheath in the square tebeng
form, are made from very well selected kemuning woods with flashings
grains. Bottom stem is made from angsana woods with tiger's stripe grains
and has very well repoussed silver panels and bands. A silver pierced through
ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.
Very sturdy blade with 9 waves or luks and well executed base features or perabots. The blade is also well tempered or nyepuh, as seen from the darker shade of the blade on the to three quarters.
Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. All patterns are unplanned and at the base, a peak like formation is seen and is called ujung gunung. The base cross piece or ganjar has small circular patterns and is called pamor sumber.
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".
