Default Keris with Ivory, Silver and Horn

Hello! This is my keris. The blade is 31 cm long and 1.5 cm wide at the center. The hilt is some kind of ivory, the hilt cup and pendok are made of silver, and the sampir and buntut are made of horn. Is it Sumatran? Also, is it possible to tell its age based on the features?

According to the dealer, it was likely brought to the US at the turn of the 20th century.

Your insights would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Fernando
