Ulu Bugis Riau Kerdas Ukiran 0120.

Ulu Bugis Riau Kerdas Ukiran 0120 � A fine example of a keris hilt from the southern Sumatran regions of Bugis, Riau Lingga. Made of hard, and well selected kemuning woods, with natural flashing grains, it is finely carved with deep floral motifs, and fine checkered motifs at places.  Made in the kerdas, or pistol grip form, typical of the region�s styles.

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 19th century.
