True Alan, i would like to see the sheaths used by dancers and actors to truly confirm that they were indeed used by them. However, what i do see in Anthony's 1941 image is again the use of the...

Nice photo Gavin. Most of the the photos i can find on the web of dancers with keris do not show the sarung. But from the hilts it is clear to see that they don't use the same figurative hilt that is...

Hi Alan. I completely agree with you that this re-dressing this keris doesn't make too much sense, especially if the sheaths made specifically to accommodate this blade or re-fitted well to accept...

I agree with Jean that this is a fair example of an old East Jawa/Madura keris. But for my money it would look nicer without the mismatched "lipstick". If the bands on the gandar are not functional...

Kai, i have also heard for some time that this form of dress may have originally developed from a form worm by dancers. I have even used that description of this dress form in the past since i do not...

I agree that this kris is very nicely crafted, but would put it more at the very end of the 20th century. It could even be early 21st century.
My take on this is that it is more likely a high end...

Well, they do have similar decorative collars and a black horn toe on the gandar, yes, but these two sheaths are hardly identical. In fact, similarities aside, they are two completely different...

Hi Charles. This is a lovely Balinese keris.
On the sarung, does it appear that it was made for this blade specifically. Certainly it was made for a blade with gonjo wilut so it seems possible. I...

I agree with Jean on a number of fronts, though I'm not sure if i would call it "nicely dressed". If the hilt is actually ivory and the metal piece silver, then there is some value in the dress, but...

No worries Charles.It was fairly recently actually. You should scan our forum more often. LOL! ;)

I am pretty sure that Anthony didn't make this dress. He did, however, commission it.
Thanks for the close-ups Anthony. The silver work is beautiful. I'm afraid i see Bali work and motifs here. I'm...

Peter, i'd like to know the blade length. I suspect this keris might well be anak alang, not panjang. :shrug:

It's a very interesting blade. Cleaned up and shot from more angles i still din't think it's Javanese, but perhaps Alan knows better. :shrug:
