Default Information concerning a Keris (Czerny's)

Dear all,
i was looking in some czerny's catalog and a keris got my eyes.
I wanted to know your opinion about it (it is already sold).
Look like a keris ligan, concerning age, it's dated 19th. The garap looks nice, and the blade well forged.
What could be the greenish aspect of the blade ?
Thanks in advance for your toughts,
Julien

IMO a nice Lombok (or Balinese) keris and the colour of the blade is because is dirty and rusty. About the age I am not able to say .... but the whole does not seem recent to me.

Hello Julien,

Sorry - very unlikely to happen anytime soon...


BTW, I believe the fittings are younger than the blade.

Regards,
Kai
