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

Keris Melayu Sepokal Junjung Darjat Dwi Warna 0820.

Keris Melayu Sepokal Junjung Darjat Dwi Warna 0820 � A very good and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian state of Terengganu, with the handle in the kerdas or pistol grip form and top sheath in the square tebeng form, made from very well selected kemuning woods. Bottom stem is fully encased with thick and finely repoussed silver, having a silver ferrule or pendoko completing the fittings

Very sturdy blade is straight, but is bent at and angle, with plain base features, it has an overall shape or dapor called sepokal.

Pamor patterns are less common from the region, and this has a background pamor kulit semagko or melon skin, and peak like formations on the foreground called junjung darjat. With 2 pamor patterns it is also called dwi warna or bi-colored.

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 middle to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 17.2".
