Default Balinese Keris

Hello all,

My name is Martin and I am from Amsterdam, i am a teacher in restoration and art history and collect since several years Keris mostly from Java Surakarta and Solo. Although the occasional Sumatra Keris is in my collection too.

After lurking for months on this forum about the Keris I will post my last addition to my collection. It,s a Balinese Keris I bought at an auction and it comes from a Dutch collection that was housed in a castle in France since 1923. Sadly no warong or mendak. It,s a beautiful blade I guess from the 19th century. It’s slightly rusted and I just started the removal of the surface rust.

Would like to know in what type of warong it would have been dressed..

Best wishes, Martin
