Keris Melayu Terengganu Sepokal Sumber 0122.
Keris Melayu Terengganu Sepokal Sumber 0122 - Another
very good example of a short keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of
Terengganu. Handle in the Terengganu�s version of the jawa
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 plain gold alloy or
top panel, and a white brass or
tembaga putih pendoko or
ferrule to complete fittings.
Very sturdy blade is straight but with an arcing profile called sepokal, 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 showing a peak like formation at the base called ujung gunung, with oval formation above it called biji nangka. At the base ganjar, there are small circles seen and this 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: 10.5". Overall length: 15".
