Keris Jawa Lurus Ganjar Dwi Warna 0320.

Keris Jawa Lurus Ganjar Dwi Warna 0320 - Another very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions, with the fittings or  wrangka  in the ladrangan Surakarta forms, having a plain brass outer stem cover or pendok blewah, with turtle shell panel in the middle.

Long and very sturdy, straight or lurus blade, with plain base features or perabots, having only the the picetan without any sogokans, with an overall shape or dapor called jalak tilam upih.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlulah technique, and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. The ganjar or base cross pieces has a rare pamor arrangements with one side in the mlumah technique and the other in the miring technique (dwi warna) or bi colored ganjar.

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 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 14.5".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- US$245 excluding shipping.
