Keris Bugis Luk 11 Perak Penuh.

Keris Bugis Luk 11 Perak Penuh – A fine example of a keris from the southern Sumatran region of Bugis Riau Lingga. Handle in the kerdas form and sheaths are made of wood, and are fully encased with finely repoussed silver.

Long and very sturdy blade with prominent spine and 11 sublime waves, has very well executed and deep perabots or base features which are typical of the region's styles.

Pamor patterns are very condensed and are arranged in the mlumah technique, and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. It is said to enhance the owner’s material well being.

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.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19.2".
