What I would like to know what kind of sword it is? I know it's not a Kris and there's different terminology for the different blades of Indonesia.
I know it's from Indonesia and it was brought over by a Dutch officer in the 1940s, around there. The family member told me it was on the wall while they were growing up. The wall hanging attachments are still on the sword.
Scabbard is pretty beat up. Looks like there's ivory on the bottom but on the top it broke off, per the previous owner. Would it mean it was actively used in the conflicts in Indonesia with the Dutch? The 1945-1950 Dutch Indonesia War of Independence?
There is discoloring on the scabbard but don't know what it is, or what it's caused by.
The middle bands are "painted on" in gold paint.
The sword's handle could be wood? horn? ivory? I can't tell. There's the same material that goes on the top of the scabbard to make the slot for the sword to go in.
The sword with the scabbard is 24 inches long.
