Vintage Antique Kris With Early Blade
An antique Kris circa 1850's with an early style of Kris blade. The blade is 13" long built with a hammered type of Damascus iron. This example is probably from Southern Thailand or Malaya. The piece is overall 16" with a hand carved bird's head grip mounted on a brass base. The blade shows its' obvious age and has not been cleaned. An excellent decorator or curio example of a classic Southeast Asian Kris.
