Keris Lombok Luk 15 Ganjar Seiras Pelet.

Keris Lombok Luk 15 Ganjar Seiras Pelet – A very good and rare example of a keris form the island of Lombok. Handle in the typical gadoan styles is made of well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. The top sheath is made of hard ebony wood, with the bottom stem having the front panel with very well selected pelet woods, and painted at the back. A silver mendak with low grade gemstones completes fittings.

Very sturdy blade with prominent spine and the rare 15 waves or luks (more common are luks from 3 to 13) has well executed perabots or base feature. The base cross piece or ganjar is also made one with the blade, and this is a rarity called ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin pamor. This pamor is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 early 19th century blade with mid 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13.8".   Overall length: 23.4".
