Barong with Cartouche
2 Attachment(s)

I thought I would share something I found on line: a junggayan barong with a huge Islamic cartouche on one side of the blade. Looks like it is koftgari on the blade.

BTW - I did not win this.

Hi Jose. Wonder if this one might be from the Sultanate of Brunei. I'm thinking 19th C.

Ian never thought of that.
