Keris Jawa Lurus Adeg Hujan Mas.

Keris Jawa Lurus Adeg Hujan Mas A very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese region of Surakarta. Fittings in the ladrangan Solo styles are made from hard and well selected timoho? woods. A finely repoussed thick brass stem cover or pendok bunton and a brass ferrule or mendak completes fittings.

Thick and very sturdy straight blade, with rather plain base features or perabots, has an overall shape or dapor called tilam upih.

Pamor pattern are rare and shows two different pamor patterns. At the base, and arranged in the mlumah technique shows small circular formations called the pamor hujan emas or golden showers. Above it, and arranged in the other miring technique, are vertical pamor lines called pamor adeg or standing pamor.
The pamor hujan emas is highly sought after for it is said to enhance the wealth of the owner, while the pamor adeg is of the protective nature. With two pamor patterns it is also called dwi warna or bi colored.

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 19th century, with late 20th century brass stem cover or pendok..

Length of blade: 14.8".   Overall length: 19.8".
