Default Small Ivory hilted Keris For Comment

Hi All

Picked this up at the show this weekend. Seems to be an older keris? The creature reminded me of a cartoon character from my childhood

Surely it seems an old malay (?) keris. Nice the sarong.

Nice score Lew. Yoou should glad i didn't show this past weekend or i may have been vieing for that keris as well.
I know we have seen that sheath form before, either from Kai Wee or Shahrial i think. Maybe they will have something to say. I think this may be a Sumatran form.

I've shown an example of the sheath form before, but Kai Wee do have a piece. [ Kai Wee's example ] Discussion of the pieces [ here ].

Hmmm... this one is a little tricky. The blade looks Sumatran. The selut, Palembang styled. The hilt form, ... unusual . The sheath's cross-piece looks a little odd, possibly a replacement. The shaft looks nice, truer to the shape of a Sumatran piece. Sorry, just my frank opinion. The blade is nice though.

From Sesame Street or the Muppets Show?

Did you made the hot needle test, Lew?

Kai

Beany and Cecil from the 60s. Don't need to do the hot needle test I can see the cross hatch pattern in the ivory in spots.
