A fine old and original Keris Panjang.

This example measures 67cms long in its sheath. Out is is 61cms long with a blade length of just over 49cms long.
The hilt or hulu is of a very rare form of pierced and carved dark horn. The bulbous face like pommel is of a writhing floral motif sitting in a carved decorated collar beneath.
The hilt sits in a plain silver cup and a faceted silver ring beneath the cup.
The blade is very good original condition throughout. It has a pair of short fullers to the base of each side and long clear forging lines throughout that run from the base to the tip.
The sheath is of native timbers, bound with two remaining silver rings and the base retains its original dark horn end piece.

A Status Keris type that is getting increasingly harder to find in fine orignal old condition.
