This looks like a nice example of modern sunggingan. Antique examples are hard to come by so it is nice to see well done modern painted dress like this. Not all examples is so precise and well done.

Yes, i don't think there is a doubt that these are Javanese. As you say though, we rarely get to see keris this old in such pristine condition.
