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

Ulu Bali Kocekan Pelet Wood 0120.

Ulu Bali Kocekan Pelet Wood 0120 - A very good example of keris handle from the island of Bali. It is very well carved in the kocekan form , and made from very well selected hardwoods called pelet, that has dark grained appearing due to fungal attack. These black grains are also associated to certain mystical properties.

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.

Dimensions: Please see top left hand corner picture.

Price:- US$145 excluding shipping.
