19th / 20th Century Madura Sandang Walikat
Keris / Kris, sold
A good condition though aged (some wood splitting) 19th / 20th
Century Madura Sandang Walikat Keris / Kris.
13 3/4 inch blade with good pamor, some patina; clearly 19th or
early 20th Century two part construction. The hilt / grip has age
splits as to be expected with tropical woods of this age, plus is
consequently loose to turn. But the hilt is exceptionally well carved
and seems to be damage free apart from the aging. The sheath looks
to be original, some splitting itself, a small section missing (along
the grain of the wood; it probably came off due to age rather than
heavy handling). A great piece at a truly low price, just £?
(too late, now sold). Further / full sized pictures available upon
request. Please quote item number E53 (885).
