Keris Jawa Lurus Pogokan Ron Genduru.

Keris Jawa Lurus Pogokan Ron Genduru – A very good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Suarkarta. Fittings in the gayaman Solo styles has the handle made of very hard woods with a gold plated silver ferrule or mendak having roughly cut yaklut stone profusions. The sheath is made from well selected trembalo woods and is made from a single piece of wood or seiras. Bottom stem is made of brass/bronze alloy with an open front exposing the single piece of wood.

Thick and very sturdy blade has very well defined base features or perabots having the blunt part of the base or gandik using the rarer pogokan.

Pamor patterns are rare and arranged in the miring technique of the palm leaf variations called pamor ron genduru. It is said to enhance the owner’s status.

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 middle to late 20th century.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 20".
