A very rare and likely unique Malay Keris.

This fine example, although requiring restorations remains in excellent condition throughout.
The Jawa Demam hilt is ivory. It has a small loss to the top and at face value beneath the fine old patina is likely marine ivory.
The collar beneath the hilt is no longer present.
The sheath is a very visually striking and unusual type. The timber grains selected are the finest possible.
The blade is an exceptional type in very fine condition, free from any rust or pitting with only darkening towards the tip.

A very fine Malay Keris.
