Ulu Bugis Kerdas Fossil Garham Gajah 0120.

Ulu Bugis Kerdas Fossil Garham Gajah 0120 � Rare example of a keris hilt made from fossilized mammoth molar or garham gajah. Well carved in the pistol grip of kerdas form, with reference to a local fruit in the shape of the hilt.

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 mid 20th century.
