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

Keris Palembang Lurus Jalak Ngore.

Keris Palembang Lurus Jalak Ngore – Another very good example of a keris from southern Sumatran region of Palembang. Handle is made of hard and well selected kemuning woods and in a human relief form typical of the region’s style. A finely repoussed silver ferrule completes the hilt. Top sheath or sampir in Malay is alos made of well selected kemuning woods with the bottom stem fully encased with finely repoussed silver.

Very long and sturdy blade with prominent thick spine and rather plain base features or perabots that includes the picetan, and very minute grenengs or fretworks. The overall, shape or dapor is called jalak ngore in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the mlunah technique and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. It is said to enhance the owner’s material well being.

Condition: Very g
ood condition
. Aside from very minor edge wears, rest is all in 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: 16".   Overall length: 21.6".
