Antique keris from Java – Solo
Exclusive keris with heavy wilah bener that showed this beautiful pamor after having been washed professionally. And the decorations look great as well!
The waranka, Ladrang type, for formal use, has a pattern that remains fascinating. The brilliance (= chattoyance) is unique and this wood is Trembalo kayu. Beautifully carved (grooves) at the short scroll. Beautiful patina.
With a half-open oversheath, penok: Blewahan.
The handle is the final piece of the keris, a Nunggak semi ukiran model, of flamed Kemuning wood, very well carved (please note the patras or masks). The mendak and selut, Njeruk keprok model, show faceted cut stones, yakut (quartz) or zirconias.
A good example of top-notch smithery: Mlinjon pamor, islands of damask running along the length on both sides of the blade.
Excellent fit and produces a 'singing' sound when the blade is drawn from the sheath. Have you already spotted the circular pamor (see photos with arrow)?
The ganja usually is very basic; this one is worth seeing.
Catchy collector's item.
Large size: 50 cm.
