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

Keris Jawa Luk 7 Carubuk 0623.

Keris Jawa Luk 7 Carubuk 0623 A very good and rare example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions. Finely carved hilt is made from wood that has a dark grained ring at the middle called pelet kendit. Carved with floral motifs, but hiding a semi human figurine form. Top sheath in the gayaman form is made from very well selected and sought after timaha pelet woods, having naturally accruing dark grains..

Very sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks, and well executed base features or perabots, having the base cross piece made with waves and is called ganjar wilut. The overall shape or dapor is called carubuk in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice, 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 19th century.

Length of blade: 13.5".   Overall length: 19".
