Keris Bali Luk 3 Jangkung Mangkurat 0523.

Keris Bali Luk 3 Jangkung Mangkurat 0523 A very good example of a keris from the island of Bali, with the handle in the bebondolan form and top sheath in the gayaman Bali form, are made from well selected pelet woods having naturally occurring contrasting grains.

Long and very sturdy blade with prominent spine, is straight or lurus, with well executed base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called jangkung mangkurat in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon skin pamor.

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 early 19th century.

Length of blade: 16".   Overall length: 24.5".
