Sold Item Notice

Macassar / Makassar Ebony is striped, like a tiger, and comes from the Makassar (AKA Ujung Padang) area of Sulawesi, Indonesia. The wood is rare and valuable enough, but especially in this form, a true Makassar Bugis Keris with the typical vertical ridge line cut into both sides of the hilt.

The 13 3/8 inch blade is in very good condition with a good pamor and firm in the hilt. The hilt cup is well above average. The garuda hilt exceptional, matching the equally exceptional sheath, also of Macassar / Makassar Ebony with a silver band and black ebony chape. The keris sheathes and draws well and fits exactly into the sheath.

This is such a good and desirable keris. Yours for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference V29. Full sized photos available upon request.
