Keris Jawa Luk 3 Dhamar Murub 0422.

Keris Jawa Luk 3 Dhamar Murub 0422 � Very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Jogjakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Jogja forms are made from well selected trembalo hard woods with tiger's striped grains. Bottom stem is encased with finely repoussed gold plated silver front stem cover or pendok, showing two merging peacocks bird, done with pierced through works. A gold alloy ferrule or mendak studded with intans and rubies completes the fittings.

Thick and very sturdy blade with 3 waves or luks located at the tip, having a prominent spine and very well executed base features or perabots, with an overall shape or dapor called dhamar murub.

Very well arranged pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice pamor, which is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

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 middle to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 18.5".
