An exceptional Yogyakarta keris with tiger naga blade and jewelled, possibly diamond and gold cup.

Sales enquiries

This is an exceptional keris. I was told the clear stones in the hilt cup are real diamonds and set into gold. I do not believe that, but the settings are exceptionally good and the price I am offering this keris is based on them being faux, but you may be especially lucky. I have scoured the specialist keris sites and can not find such a fine example for anything short of five figures (USD), which I think is unrealistic but just goes to show how much these items can and possibly do sell for elsewhere. This absolutely would be an exceptional museum piece, let alone for a private collector.

The 14 inch blade has a very good pamor and it firm in the hilt. The jewelled cup has exceptional golden filigree work, so that I tend to believe it may well be real gold. The stones, whether they be glass (I do not think so), or zirconas or diamonds are all present; the settings are very well done. The original scabbard with its silver metal sheath is decorated with deer, serpents and foliage; there is one small kink in the metalwork. An exceptional keris at an exceptionally low price. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number A28 (522).
