Keris Lombok Sepang Lar Gangsir Ulu Rambut 609.

Keris Lombok Sepang Lar Gangsir Ulu Rambut 609 – A very rare example of a keris from island of Lombok. Handle in the grantiman form is made of wood and is wrapped with weaved human hairs. Sheath in the sandang walikat form is made form well selected pellet woods with natural contrasting grains. A brass ferrule or mendak with agate stone insets completes fittings.
 

Very long blade with the symmetrical base has an overall shape or dapor called sepang. The perabots or base features also has the pierced through Shiva eyes, as well as the wavy cross piece or ganjar wilut.
 

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the miring technique and is called pamor lar gangsir. The pamor is said to enhance the owner’s status.

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 late 19th century.

Length of blade: 20.5".   Overall length: 27.8".
