Golok Sumbawa Perak Dwi Warna 0523.

Golok Sumbawa Perak Dwi Warna 0523  A very good and rare example of a short sword called golok from the eastern Indonesian islands of Sumbawa. The handle is made of buffalo horn and carved in the relief form of a bird's head. The sheath is fully encased with finely repoussed silver with floral motifs and two small protrusions to assist in wearing.

Thick and very sturdy blade with a single sharp edge and a broad top; features common in goloks.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique, with the base showing vertical formation called adeg, or standing pamor, and the tip of the blade ends in peaks or ujung gunung. With two pamor arrangements, it is also called dwi warna or bi colored.

Condition: Very good condition
Except for minor dents and ships at the silver 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: 16".   Overall length: 21.5".

Price:- Singapore SGD$880 excluding shipping.
