Keris Palembang Luk 11 Kinatah Emas 610.
Keris Palembang Luk 11 Kinatah Emas 610 – A very
good and rare example of keris from the southern Sumatran regions of Palembang.
Semi natural, or gana, handle, in the typical Palembang semi bird form,
is made of hard kemuning woods. Top sheath in the typical Palembang
“boat” style, is also made from well selected kemuning woods with
flashing grains. Bottom stem is fully encased with finely repoussed silver
having different motifs at the front and back. A finely repoussed silver
pendoko or ferrule completes fittings.
Long and sturdy blade with sublime 11 waves or luks and prominent spine, and having well executed and deep perabots or base features.
Floral tendril motifs of 18K gold inlaying works or kinatah emas, is seen adorning the base.
Pamor patterns are rather rare and are arranged in the mlumah technique. Concentrated at the middle of the blade along the spine, small ovalish arrangements are called wiji timun or cucumber seeds. It 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 late 18th century blade with late 19th century fittings.
Length of blade: 15". Overall length: 19".
