Sharing a barung collection from my father's. This was purchased around 2 years ago from the family of a balikbayan from the US. What attracted me is the silver braids on the handle. My first impression is that this barung's pommel was missing (am I correct to say this?). Could there have been a pommel on this piece? what possible design could it have been?
because of the silver handle and the braids...could this be a middle to upper-class type?
Thanks for your info and keep safe always.
Note: the rattan weaves are, in my opinion, a new addition to either hold the scabbard pieces together or for safely reasons.
