Notes

Presumably kris and scabbard belong so valued together. The scabbard is now in two parts, the glue having given way. The front surface of the lower part has been broken so that the cavity for the blade is exposed. Interestingly, the front face is a separate length of wood, with heavily marked grain set in as a panel.
