In this lot we are pleased to offer an outstanding quality antique kris handle from the collection of the late Dr. Maurius Van den Hout. Dr. Maurius Van den Hout was a physician with the Dutch colonial government here in Indonesia during the years prior to WWII.

This is a masterpiece from the small island of Madura which is located off the northeast coast of Java. It is carved from the species of mahogany indigenous to the rain forests of Borneo. It dates from at least the mid 19th century and is carved in the Dutch baroque style introduced to Madura by the Dutch VOC. Masterfully carved in foliate designs it also bears the winged horse, or Kuda Panole known as Si Mega which is from the Sumenep coat of arms. The legend of Kuda Panole goes back to the last Majapahit king, Brawijaya and his son-in-law Jaka Tule, Prince of Sumenep. While Jaka Tule was leaving Brawijaya, a horse escaped and nobody could control the animal. When Jaka Tule approached the horse, it was subdued and it knelt down before the Prince and turned its sight backwards.

This is among the finest example of a kris handle from Madura that we have ever seen. It is in excellent original condition and measures 8 cm or almost 3 ¼ inches in height.

This superb antique kris handle will come with a custom made metal display stand.
