I agree with you, for me it's unlikely that the scabbard is mid-18th century. Being reasonable I would say that it dates from the 19th century.

For the Mendak, I have several old but what are the...

Inside the sheath the wood is lighter, but already a little orange. As with the majority of sheaths, I think polishing and waxing (or oil?) make the color of the wood darker and more intense.

Can the style of the sheath or blade of this keris indicate a time that reinforces or invalidates this date of "1821"?

A strange (west?) Javanese Keris.

Hello,

This is my last acquisition. As often, I like objects that show a bit of originality.
I find this keris very strange because the wrangka iras sheath is Javanese (West Java?) But the handle is...

Thank you all for your information.

The blade is "short", 33cm. But the pamor seems to have shown that it was longer at the beginning and that it was shortened afterwards. :shrug:

Yes it's a Keris with all the characteristics of a (recent) production of Madura (The handle, the sheath, the realization of the blade and pamor).
For the pamor it may be Mayang?

After reflection, the blade does not have the hexagonal section typical of keris Bugis but rather a rhombic section that would be more reminiscent of penisular keris.

I confess that I mainly based on the dress of the keris, but also on the solid and massive aspect of the blade.

Origine of Bugis Keris?

I am looking for the origin of this Keris. The scabbard is very similar to those I have from Sulawesi but it is not the original one that has been adapted for the blade... (I had never seen...

For me, the decorations were hand painted on the fabric.
Whenever I saw (on the internet) fabrics with this type of painting the provenance was always Bali.

Even if the slide doesn't fit in the central Java classification, is it still possible to estimate its aproximative age?
