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

Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Tri Warna.

Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Tri Warna A very good and rather rare example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions. Handle in the form of the bondolan, and top sheath in the form of the gayaman branggah styles, are made from well selected pellet woods with natural contrasting grains.

Long and very sturdy blade with rather minimal base features or perabots, has an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.

Pamor patterns are rare, arranged in the miring technique, and has three different patterns on the blade. At the base is a semi circle formation called batu lapak, and the top has a few swirls patterns called qul buntet, and the edges has pamor lines called wengkon. With 3 different pamor patterns, it is also called tri warna, or tri colored.

The pamor batu lapak and the pamor qul buntet are said to protect the owner in times of chaos, the pamor wengkon is said to protect the owner and those close to him.

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 late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14.5".   Overall length: 20.5".
