Keris Jawa Luk 11 Ladrangan Seiras 1112.

Keris Jawa Luk 11 Ladrangan Seiras 1112 – A good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Handle is made from very well selected pellet woods with contrasting grains and the top sheath or wrangka is in the ladrangan Solo form is made from well selected woods with natural flashing grains and is also made from a single piece of wood or seiras. Bottom stem is encased with an open brass stem cover or pendok blewah exposing the wood in the middle showing it without any joints.

Long and sturdy blade with 11 waves or luks and rather complete few base features or perabots has an overall shape or dapor called sempana(?).

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the miring technique of the adeg or standing variations. Vertically arranged to flow with the blade, note that even the ganjar or base cross piece has the vertical arrangement which is call pamor asihan.
The pamor wos utah is said to enhance the owner’s material well being, while the pamor asihan 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 mid 18th century blade with 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19".
