Keris Madura Luk 13 Sangkelat 0522.

Keris Madura Luk 13 Sangkelat 0522 - A very good example of a keris form the island of Madura. Finely carved handle in a soldier like form wearing a helmet and epaulettes. The top sheath or wrangka in the ladrangan Madura form, is made from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains, having the bottom stem encased with finely repoussed brass stem cover or pendok blewah. A brass mendak or ferrule completes fittings.

Long and very sturdy blade with 13 meandering waves or luks, has well executed base features or
perabots, with an overall shape or dapor called sangkelat.

Pamor patter are arranged in the mlumah technique and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations.

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 19th century blade, with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 15.5".   Overall length: 20.5".
