Keris Palembang Lurus Pari .

Keris Palembang Lurus Pari – Another very good example of a Palembang, South Sumatran keris, with typical form of handle in a bird like form. The top sheath and the bottom stem are made of hard and dark woods, with a single plain silver bands at the neck joints.

Long and very sturdy straight blade with prominent spine and well executed base features or perabots, is rather broad at the base and tapers to the tip. The overall shape has a resemblance to the sting ray’s tail or ekor pari in Malay.

Pamor patterns are condense and are well arranged in the mlumah technique and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations.

Condition: Very g
ood 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 early 19th century, with 20th century hilt.

Length of blade: 14.4".   Overall length: 19.2".
