Keris, Jawa Demam hilt, Sumatra, Kelling Hall collection.
A very fine Keris with only a small loss of the bone tip that once was to the base of the scabbard.
In original untouched condition, this Keris measures 47cms and no doubt would have been closer to 50cms with a bone tip present. 45cms out of the scabbard with a 36cms blade in outstanding condition. The blade shows well executed patterns and sports a razor sharp edge.
The Jawa Demam hilt and the scabbard all show beautiful grains within the timber and remian in fantastic condition.
Overall an outstanding untouched Keris that had been sitting silently within Kelling Hall for near 100 years.
All weapons sold from these boards will come with a photograph of the sitting room and a photo of the board the item comes from, along with a short history outlining their important historical provenance.
