Keris Bali Luk 3 Pudak Setegal Dwi Warna 0723.

Keris Bali Luk 3 Pudak Setegal Dwi Warna 0723 A very good and rare example of a keris from the island of Bali. Finely carved wooden hilt is in a figurine form of an elderly bearded man with a walking staff that most likely depict a shaman. Top sheath in the less common kusiwo form is made from very well selected and sought after gembol or burl woods. Bottom stem is fully encased with finely repoussed silver having animal and floral motifs.

Very sturdy blade with 3 waves or luks, and well executed base features or perabots, having the small protrusion at the sides called pudak setegal. The overall shape or dapor is called jangkung in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique, showing contouring patterns at the bottom half called pamor wos utah or scattered rice, and above it are paired small circles arranged in the middle called the pamor bonang serinting, referring to a musical instrument from the gamelan orchestra.

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 late 19th century blade with late 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- Singapore SGD$980 excluding shipping.
