Keris Bugis Sulawesi Luk 11 Ganjar Seiras 709.

Keris Bugis Sulawesi Luk 11 Ganjar Seiras 709 – Another good and rare example of a keris from the southern Sulawesi regions of Bugis. Handle in the kerdas form, and top sheath in the tebeng form, are made from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains. Restored bottom stem is made of wood, with a thick repoussed brass ferrule or pendoko to complete fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with11 meandering waves or luks and typical Bugis perabots or base features, having the base cross piece or ganjar made one with the blade and is called
ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin variations. It is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 early 19th century with restored wooden bottom stem.

Length of blade: 13.7".   Overall length: 18".

Price:- US$230 excluding shipping.
