Keris Palembang Luk 7 Ganjar Seiras 0523.

Keris Palembang Luk 7 Ganjar Seiras 0523 A very good and rare example of a keris from the southern Sumatran regions of Palembang. Handle in the typical Palembang human relief figurine form has a finely repoussed silver ferrule or pendoko. Top sheath in the Palembang's boat form is made from well selected kemuning woods, with an angsana bottom stem.

Very sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks, and well executed base features or perabots, having the base cross piece made one with the blade called ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are forged in the miring technique of the adeg or standing variations, which is said to protect the owner from natural mishaps.

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.

Length of blade: 13.5".   Overall length: 18.5".

Price:- Singapore SGD$570 excluding shipping.
