MALAY ART GALLERY'S....House of  Keris

Keris Jawa Luk 13 Sangkelat 0414.

Keris Jawa Luk 13 Sangkelat 0414 - Another very good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Solo styles with hilt made of hard tayuman(?) woods and sheath made from a single piece of wood or seiras. Bottom stem is encased with thick plain open front brass cover or pendok blewah, exposing the single piece of wood used, without any joints.

 Sturdy blade with prominent spine and 13 waves or luks, having very well executed base features or perabots with an overall shape or dapor called Sangkelat.

  Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique with very condense pamor pedaringan kebak. which is said to enhance the owner's status.

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 18th century blade with restored 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13.6".   Overall length: 18.5".
