I am not going to guess what this might be, because it is a little bit unusual, and I'd really need it in my hand to support any guess.
However, to me, it looks very much like the ladrang type that starts in Tegal and runs all along the north coast into East Jawa.
Actually, when I saw the first example of this type it was introduced to me by a very well known collector who lived in Malang and who considered it to be an East Javanese ladrangan, I only found out much later that it could be found all the way through to Tegal.
If we strip it of the ornamental enhancements, what does the form look like?
If we consider the enhancement at the ri pandan, where do we often find that, or a similar, enhancement?
