A very rare Coteng Keris from Southern Thailand.

This Keris measures just under 41cms out of its sheath with a blade length is 33cms long.
The rare hilt type is carved from and inlaid and overlaid with silver.
The attention to detail and placement of this silver makes for an interesting, unusual and very attractive, contrasting Coteng hilt.
The blade is of fine old form with a strong medial ridge and pattern welded/pamor surfaces.
The Keris comes with a sheath larger than is correct for the blade and hilt but is of the period and region and with losses.

A very rare and sought after Keris type rarely seen.
