Default Indonesian sword? 2

This is a beautyfill sword with chased silver scabbard. My guess is also Indonesia. What do you think?

Likely Sumatran, some possibility that it is Javanese.

Very nice example!

Hi Gavin,

the head shows makara, widespread in the archipelago but here in the Sunda/Cirebon style IMVHO. http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ghlight=cirebon & http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...highlight=golok
