Beautiful Javanese Naga Keris With Mammoth Ivory grip and warangka with a twelve-luk blade. A gilded dragon decorates the top of the blade, it is highly likely that the gilding has been refreshed but not in the more than thirty years that it has been in our possession.
The bulbous selut is set with several clear coloured stones with small clear stones set between the decorative floral repoussé work decorating the metal sheath.
The metal sheath is embossed with an intricate pattern on one side. The other side is plain. A few stones are missing on the sheath.
We have been informed that this Javanese keris is similar to another keris on our website with the grip and Waranka made from Mammoth Ivory. (see images)
