At the left: Menak Jinggo (red dog). At the right: Damar Wulan (moon), with Sabda Palan (servant). Their condition is stunning. the gold gilt is of the highest quality and all original. The quality reminds me of the pieces brought back by Raffles to the British Museum and these pieces could well date first half of the 19th Century.
