Keris Melayu Riau Luk 9 Ulu Tandok 909.
Keris Melayu Riau Luk 9 Ulu Tandok 909 – A very good
and rather rare example of a keris form the southern Sumatra or southern
Malaysian peninsular regions of Riau Lingga. The handle is made from buffalo
horn, and is in a very rare form of the jawa demam with strong kerdas
or pistol grip characteristics. Top sheath in the tebeng form is made
from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains, with the bottom
stem is made from well selected bongo woods having a kemuning bottom tip
in the patat lipas or roaches’ back form. A well repoussed silver ferrule
or pendoko completes fittings.
Very sturdy blade with 9 luks or waves and well executed perabots or base features having angled edges making the cross section hexagonal.
Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. All patterns are unplanned or pamor tiban, and at the base an unplanned pamor tiban showing a peak like formation is seen and is called pamor ujung gunung.
The pamor wos utah is said to enhance the owner’s material well being, while the pamor ujung gunung is said to enhance the owner’s status.
Condition: Very good condition. Aside from minor patching at the bottom tip, rest is all in 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: 13.1". Overall length: 17.6".
