Default Banjarmasin keris for comments.

Today was my lucky day in personal life.
Daughter turned 8, family and friends visited and we had a wonderfull day.

Unfortunately I missed out on an auction of a imho banjarmasin keris.
Posting pictures here for comments and sharing.

Best regards,
Willem

a marriage made in heaven

the sheath is of Cirebon and Solo influence. The hilt is stylized from the Bugis rekko hilt but has strong Kalimantan flavor. The blade... well we need a clearer shot.

Unfortunately these are all the pictures I have, and I was not the lucky buyer.

Better pictures of the blade would have been interesting indeed.

its an unusual tipe of warangka.
it would be nice to see the whole keris indeed.
since there is no certain tipe of kalimantan keris, we can only see the different fron the tipe of jejeran. its common to see bugis, java,sumatera keris mounth with kalimantan jejeran and warangka.

The same type of Wrongko is depicted in van Duuren's bibliography, the last colour plate, also atributed to Banjarmasin. On this Wrongko besides the exagerated Lambe the most distinctive feature is the straight Loto. Solonese Gayaman Wrongkos generally doesn't have a Loto, except one type on which it appears, yet curved.

It says nothing of course. The makers in Indonesia are using Keris books for their creations for some time already. It could be just the light in the pictures, yet the right side of Wrongko (when held correctly) looks a bit like reworked, like sanded down, the surface has slightly other, lighter colour then the left side.
There is a possibility the Lambe and Loto are worked out on a common Solonese Gayaman.

The hilt looks like Peninsular Pipit Teleng hilt, yet without being Teleng.
