One more keris #2
One more keris
to which I seek any information I receive.
thank you very much
Old Bugis blade from Sulawesi, deeply cleaned
Recently made dress
Nice and good Bugis keris. I don't think that the sheat and hilt are recent but well restored. The sampir wood have some old cracks you can see often by kemuning wood.
Considering the cracks I also think thatthis scabbard is not newly made, but just cleaned and well polished.
Same as with the blade, cleaned and stained in javanese style.
Not the way I like it with bugis blades, by the way.
Still, nice piece, amazing what comes out of this swiss cupboard ;) :)
Agree, possibly, most likely refinished .
A Sepokal* form of blade I believe .
*Bamboo Shoot ??
Many thanks for the many good references.
as my collection area goes around the world, I am not a specialist in detail and so happy, it gives you. smile.
ps. keris have more to smile to show
