Description

Kris sheath, "T" shaped, made of light wood. It is constructed of two separate pieces of wood. At the top of the sheath, one side is painted black and carved in with floral designs. One side of this has been repaired with glue in the past. The other side is painted painted plain black with no designs. One branch of the T is missing on the back. Sheath is partially wrapped with string in a crisscross pattern; also wrapped with some twine. A pattern remaining on the wood indicates a different wrapping in the past with a wider material. The middle of the sheath is cracked. At bottom of sheath there is a piece of wood missing, and it is possible to see inside the sheath.
