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

Keris Pedang Lombok Luk 9.

Keris Pedang Lombok Luk 9 – A very rare example of a keris from the eastern island of Lombok. Handle and sheath are made from hard and dark ebony woods and on the form called sandang walikat. The bottom stem is encased with finely repoussed silver panels with different motifs at the front and back. A silver ferrule studded with low grade rubies completes fittings.

Very sturdy blade with prominent spine and the 9 waves or luks, located at the top half of the blade. The base of the blade has the features or perabots that has an overall shape or dapor called keris pedang, or a sword keris.

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

Condition: 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 late 19th century blade with mid 20th century fittings.

Length of blade: 15.6".   Overall length: 21.5".
