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

Keris Jawa Lurus Sekar Kopi. 

Keris Jawa Lurus Sekar Kopi A very good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese region of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman surakarta forms with the hilt made of horn and top sheath made of very well selected pellet woods with natural contrasting grains. Bottom stem is fitted with an open brass stem cover or pendok blewah. A brass mendak or ferrule completes fittings.

Long and very sturdy straight blade with prominent spine, has very minimal base features of perabots, and has an overall shape or dapor called tilam sari.

Pamor patterns are rare and show groups of 3 circles arranged in the middle of the blade. This formation is called pamor sekar kopi, or coffee seeds.

Condition: Very g
ood condition

 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 20th century.

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