No David, I do not know the "colour code" for Yogyakarta sunggingan work.
I am unable to determine the motif used in the sunggingan work.
The "wish hole" looks very much like the gap we frequently find between wilah and gonjo, as such it cannot be regarded as a combong, however, as is common in matters of belief, an individual can always subscribe to his own beliefs.
David Gallus has told us that he is a goldsmith, so if he says this pendok is gold I fully believe that statement, however, if it has been tested as gold, may we know the level of purity?
On my screen this pendok looks very much like mamas and the embossing also looks as if it is work done in mamas.
