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

Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Lawe Saukel 0421.

Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Lawe Saukel 0421 - A very good and rare example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions, with fittings in the ladrangan forms having the top sheath made from very well selected pelet woods, and the bottom stem fully encased with deeply repoussed silver.

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

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique showing flowing lines along the blade called pamor lawe saukel or untwining threads.

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 bade with late 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 19.5".   Overall length: 14.75".

Price:- Singapore SGD$620 excluding shipping.
