Pedang Batak Ulu Figurine Brass 1022.

Pedang Batak Ulu Figurine Brass 1022 – Very rare example of a sword form the central Sumatran region of Batak. Fittings are made of thick brass having a human figurine hilt form with sheath having thick and finely chiselled brass top and bottom tip with geometrical motifs typical of the region's style, having brass chain attachments.

Thick and very sturdy and still sharp blade has the typical Batak sword features with base tang exposed and the minute protrusions at the base of the blade.

Pamor patterns are not contrasting as is the norm of the region preferring not to use nickel, but more of iron and steel metals. Arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations which is said to enhance the owner’s material well being.

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 the early 20th century.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 22".

Price:- Singapore SGD$550 excluding shipping.
