Sales enquiries

A beautiful old keris with very well carved hilt and wavy 9 luk blade; the remains of a painted record / not on the blade shows a British serviceman or possibly civil servant by the name of "Weller" acquired this keris in 1897. 12 3/4 inch blade, some light pitting. Carved wooden grip / hilt with no apparent damage except for some light cracking of the tropical wood as to be expected. The hand painted fine date, etc. inscription would easily remove from the blade if required. A great little item. Please quote item reference D45 (714). Full sized images available upon request.
