Keris Palembang Lurus Pogokan 0720.

Keris Palembang Lurus Pogokan 0720 - A good and rather rare example of a keris from the southern Sumatran region of Palembang. Handle in the typical Palembang relief human figurine form with the top sheath or sampir in the sabit bulan or crescent moon form, are made from well selected kemuning woods. A well repossed silver ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with a prominent spine, is straight or lurus, with base features or perabots that are well executed, and having the rather rare kembang kacang pogokan.

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variation. 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 middle 18th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19".
