Keris Jawa Lurus Pamor Ayat Nabi Nuh.

Keris Jawa Lurus Pamor Ayat Nabi Nuh – A good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings or wrangka is in the ladrangan solo form is made from well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. Bottom stem is encased with finely repoussed brass stem cover or pendok bunton.

Rather plain blade with few base features or perabots has an overall shape or dapor called jalak ngore.

Pamor patterns are rare and are overall arranged in the mlumah technique. At the base, a peak like formation is seen and is called pamor triman. Above it, and arranged in the trapan technique, are pamor lines depicting a verse from the Quran mentioning the Prophet Noah. Both pamor are said to enhance the owner’s status as well as a protective pamor.

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 middle to late 20th century.

Length of blade: 14.8".   Overall length: 20.5".
