TD is a man of few things. He likes his electronics, but like most men, he doesn’t really do knick-knacks. However he did want his own remembrance of Jakarta. We found this antique gun in Kemang Timur in a shop called Rambuata (I pass by it on the way to (and near) Koncept Kemang and Lio Gallery. It’s a very small shop with furniture piled up, out front.
We got it at such a great price with TD’s amazing haggling skills (he is even better than me!). We don’t really care if it’s real antique or repro, for the price it’s an amazing piece. TD likes it and that’s all that counts.
Sorry I can’t give the specific address for Rambuata, but if you are in the Kemang Timur road it’s somewhere near Koncept and Galeri Pot.
I came up with a perfect way to display the gun. Will be sharing it with you and where I had it made soon! Watch out for it!
