Antique Bugis with tolitoli keris - Sumbawa - Indonesia - early 19th century
Bon état

Authentic Bugis keris with luxurious look. A sturdy antique keris blade with strong axis line and clear pamor. Ngulit semangka (= melon skin damask). The blade fits nicely into the sheath.
Bugis kerises have an angular warangka and usually a straight blade. The same is true for this type. Beautifully decorated, although less old than the antique blade.
The handle (hulu or ukiran) is a bird handle model (Burung). Also with beautiful large lotus-cup selut made of brass. Also has flamed Kemuning wood with tolitoli (loop with jewel and chain). The tolitoli especially gives this keris cachet. The brooch has 24 large and small faceted cut zirconias and is made with a filigree style. Wound with wiring and attached to the pendok. This outer sheath is richly chiselled with both geometric and floral patterns. Buntut (the so-called shoe) of wood, same type of wood as the crosspiece.
Large size: 51 cm
