Rasjid,

Some very impressive examples.
Does the first one have a date of 1706?
The last one the Donoriko is great too!

Thanks for sharing, Erik

What an unusual donoriko! The proportions, form and carvings are all quite unique!

Definitely worth looking at for a long while!

Dear Rasjid,

Regarding the style of carving -- creative carving, not too conventional but sometimes too complicated -- did Jaknal make this hilt specially for you? (Jaknal -- one of the best contemporary Maduran ivory carver, died about a month ago in Madura. He was less than 60 years old...)

I agree, the donoriko is very thick and big, suitable for big keris.

Yes erikscollectables, It's 1706 but small size.

Ganjawulung, I got it (big donoriko) from Jaknal (his personal collection), but I don't think he made this one. It's different carving, compare with the new donoriko, I posted ealier, made by late Jaknal. It's his last piece.

regards,
rasjid

Hello Sjors,

Thanks Sajen,

Doesn't matter! Two packets of cigarettes, (in spite of the fact that I don"t smoke) would have cost me more!
So it's allways a bargain!

You'r probably right, maybe not what we call "old" but I'm sure it should be at least 60 years old or more because it's in the Netherlands since that time ..., like a lot of keris and keris handles.
I sometimes wonder if there's a country outside of Indonesia where you will be able to find more keris than the Netherlands?

For a price like this it's of course a bargain.

The Netherlands have indeed a big resource of keris and hilts and nowadays most of the time by better price than in Indonesia.

You are probably right, Sajen. I know last year my "dealer" Yogya-friend has sent more than 1.000 kerises and handles to Holland, and also some to Malaysia, during a keris exhibition there...

But still, thousands of keris population in Jawa, Madura, Bali and Lombok. Old and new products. Yes, I've seen too, some Lombok dealers has dealt with Malaysian collectors too... That's keris life

Unfortunately I have not been to Indonesia yet...now I will wait a few years untill the youngest is 4 or 5 before we go. I do not like buying from photo's to much so almost all pieces I have were bought in Holland. Of course some the items were laready more recently imported by dealers here but most have been overhere sind the end of the '40s of last century...

A group of Madura handles and my favorite Donoriko in ivory and the favorite in wood in close ups.

It depends on where and from whom you get them. Jakarta is one of the best place to get all types of kerises of Indonesia...

Here is one of my recent collection. Quite unique Maduran patrem sheath -- with motif of "singa" (lion) and small Maduran patrem handle with "soldier" motif...

Dear Erik,

our youngest son haven't been one year old when he go to Indonesia first time. It's no problem to travel in Indonesia with children.

BTW, nice collection Erik.

Wow, very nice patrem keris. Myabe I have to visit Jarkarta by my next visit in Indonesia. It's long time ago that I have been there (1992) but there I buy my first keris handle and by this start my collection! And until now it's one of my favorite keris handles.

And not to forget to visit The National Museum of Jakarta, Sajen. They have beautiful collections of Indonesian kerises in excellent dresses and excellent accessories too... Whether they are javanese, Riau, Palembang, Minang, Banjarmasin kerises....

And this is more keris sheath of my recent collection. A quite unique motif of sheath -- bird-motif. IMHO, it is a Maduran sheath...

Nice example of this form of dress. I don't think it is particularly unique as i have seen quite a few of this style, but yours has nice attention to detail. It has always been my understanding that this particular form was made for Dutch soldiers to bring home keris from Jawa back in the day. Sort of the original "tourist" keris. Perhaps others know different.

Yes, probably you are right, David. Anyway, it is a funny motif -- not so mystical at all...

The complete composition of the hilt, with medium size keris and javanese "sandhang walikat" (informal) type of warangka, made of "mangga hutan" (forest mango tree) wood...

Yes, but I think David is right too -- the hilt is not well executed. Not good quality of carving. And I don't think this "lion" model is not a "serious model". I mean, not a standard model for traditional Maduran keris... A touristique model, but funny and cute -- especially the lion

Just to qualify my earlier statement, yes, i think these were made for Dutch soldiers, but i really like them when they are well executed. They my be the first "tourist" keris, but i would still like to add a nice one to my collection sometime as i feel this is an important part of keris history and the history of Madura.

Another Maduran "tourist" warangka and hilt... You may regard the "dutch face with moustache" on one side of the hilt...
