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

Keris Melayu Terengganu Luk 7a 1221.

Keris Melayu Terengganu Luk 7a 1221 - Another very good example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Terengganu. Handle in the Terengganu�s version of the jawa demam form called the anak ayam teleng or cuddling chick, is made from very well selected ketengga woods with naturally occurring contrasting grains. The top sheath in the tebeng form is made from very well selected kemuning woods with natural flashing grains. Bottom stem is made from well selected angsana woods with a white brass or tembaga putih 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 which 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 middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 18".
