From the provincial region of north western Burma, a standing figure with extended left hand. Probably an ancestor figure that would have resided on a household shrine. Carved of wood and lacquered with an undercoat of black and finished with gold gilt, of which only traces remain, the figure is further adorned with a wig of human hair. There are holes in the ears suggesting that earrings and perhaps fabric attire may have been present at one time. The figure stands on an integral wood base...

A nice old example of a Malay Golok. The scabbard and hilt have a pleasing patina and the wood work on the scabbard is more refined and detailed than usually found. There is a small 1" crack in the stylized birds head hilt. The blade is of traditional form with a chisel edge and appears to be unpolished carbon steel. There are a few minor patches of surface rust. A very nice example. Overall length 22", blade 15". Early 20th C.
