Keris Jawa Jogja Lurus Bungkem Rojo Gundolo 509.
Jogja Lurus Bungkem Rojo Gundolo 509 –
Another good and rare example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of
Jogjakarta. Fittings in the ladrangan jogja styles, with the handle made
of hard tayuman(?) woods and the top sheath made of hard woods having the
bottom stem encased with well repoussed brass stem cover or pendok bunton.
A brass mendak or ferrule with colored glass profusions completes
Sturdy straight blade has the base features or perabots using the kembang kacang bungkem;- the elephant trunk like feature that is curled in to touch the blade.
Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique and shows very good metal selections forming the pattern called kulit semangko or melon's skin pamor. All patterns are unplanned or pamor tiban, and at the base there are unplanned pamor tiban resembling a human figurine called pamor rojo gundolo.
The pamor kulit semangko is said to enhance the owner's popularity, while the pamor rojo gundolo is sought after for it is said to ward away unseen presence in a surrounding.
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 middle 18th century blade and hilt, with mid 20th century sheath.
Length of blade: 14". Overall length: 18.5".
