Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Sepaner Rubiyong Pelet 0215.

Keris Jawa Timur Lurus Sepaner Rubiyong Pelet 0215 - A very good example of a keris from the eastern Javanese regions. Fitting in the gayaman branggah styles is made from very well selected pelet woods with contrasting grains that occur naturally due to fungus attack only on that part of the tree. The sheath is also made from a single piece of wood, or seiras.

Very sturdy blade with prominent spine and although is straight or lurus, it has a very angular profile like the sepokal of the Bugis or Malay blades. Base features or perabots are also very well executed using the kembang kacang, with jenggots and lambei gajah, including the minute fretworks or grenengs. The overall shape or dapor is called sepaner rubiyong in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations and is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

Condition: Vey 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.

Length of blade: 12.5".   Overall length: 17".
