Keris Palembang Sepokal Ganjar Seiras Adeg.

Keris Palembang Sepokal Ganjar Seiras Adeg - A good and rare example of a Palembang, South Sumatran keris, with typical form of handle in a human figurine like form. The top sheath and the bottom stem are made of hard and and well selected kemuning woods, with a horn bottom tip.

Thick and very sturdy straight blade with prominent triangular spine and an angular profile, has overall shape or dapor called sepokal in Malay. The ganjar or base cross piece is made one with the blade and is called ganjar seiras.

Pamor patterns are condense and are well arranged in the miring technique and are of the adeg or standing variations. It is said to protect the owner from natural disasters  like fires and floods.

Condition: Very g
ood condition
. Aside from minor hairline cracks at the handle and slight patching at the tip of sheath, 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 middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 12".   Overall length: 16".
