MALAY ART GALLERY'S....House of  Keris

Keris Bugis Sumbawa Lurus Pedaringan Kebak.

Keris Bugis Sumbawa Lurus Pedaringan Kebak – Very good and rare example of a keris from the eastern islands of Sumbawa which has strong Bugis influences. Handle in the kerdas form and top sheath are made from very well selected kemuning woods with natural flashing grains. Bottom stem is fully encased with finely repoussed brass, with a well reposed brass ferrule or pendoko to complete the fittings.

Very sturdy blade with rather plain base features or perabots having an angled profile has an overall shape or dapor called sepokal in Malay.

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the miring technique with an overall pattern called pedaringan kebak. The pamor pedaringan kebak 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 middle to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 12.8".   Overall length: 17".
