Wow!

Absolutely stunning.

Would the Brass inlay have talismanic properties here? Or is this likely just decorative?

Thanks,
Leif

Hi Leif,

thank you! Frankly said, I can't answer your good question.
But what's funny, I purchased this little beauty from a german website similar like ebay.

Regards,
Detlef

I believe the answer is "yes". Bronze, brass, and copper blades appear to be talismanic, and by extrapolation, their use on blades (along with silver) is used for talismanic purposes. In fact often they appear on blades lnlaid in talismanic forms like animals, the sun, stars, other symbols, and even script.

Hello Kai,
thank you! Will need a little bit. I like this early gunongs with inlaid blades. I think it's a late 19th to very early 20th century piece.

Detlef

I agree Detlef. I also like walker gunongs andd this one is a good one with great Maranao silver inlay.

Congratulations!

Thank you Jose for confirming my age guess. What you mean by "walker gunong"?

I hate auto-correct!

This was a typo. It was supposed to say "earlier" gunongs.

In fact, I love this inlay best because it has truly traditional Maranao okir. Not seen one like it till now.

A recent addition, later version around the 1940s but I like this style.

Ahh, so you're the one who out bid me. No worries. It left me money to buy something else ;-)

I also like this style. It is a nice one. I really like the grain on the pommel and the okir.

I hope you enjoy it!

Have fun,
Leif

Detlef,
What a wonderful collection of gunongs you have been putting together. If ask I would have to say that even though they are all beautiful examples of the pandays art that the third one from the left and the one with the deeply cut blade that is ninth from the right are my favorites ones in this grouping. I am looking forward to seeing many more photos of new pieces as you find and adopt them into this family.


Best,
Robert

NICE Collection! You clearly have good taste and have been quite selective in your gunong acquisitions. Lovely pieces!

Thank you Robert as well for the work you have done on some of this examples. The two mentioned ones are also my favorites.

Best regards,
