Hi Alan. I understand that these hilts were made for a time in Jawa for a Balinese market. What about this sheath. The photos aren't great, but the pattern on the pendok looks more Javanese than Balinese to my eye. And the shape and flow of the sheath (which i assume is ivory???) looks a bit off. Could this entire ensemble originate in Jawa?
