Ladieng, Northern Sumatra, Kelling Hall collection.

Ladieng from Northern Sumatra.
This wonderful Aceh Ladieng remains in very good condition.
Overall it is 79cms tip to tip in a straight line with a broad sweeping, hollow graound that measures 64cms.
The fully carved Hulu tapa guda hilt also remains in very good condition and it measures 15cms.
As noted by Zonneveld in his outstanding work "Traditional Weapons of the Indonesian Archipelago", this sword is found without scabbard. It is also noted these pieces were formidable combat weapons in their day which is the period in history this piece has come from.
A very nice clean example with a fully carved hilt.
