Sold 

An unusual antique Japanese solid cast-iron lantern dating to the Taisho period (1912-1926). Although appearing square, the lantern is in fact a rhombus shape when viewed from above. The circular door and catch are in good working order. The sides are decorated with a beautiful pierced bamboo design. Lanterns such as this were traditionally hung under the eaves above the entrance to a Japanese home to provide illumination in the evenings. A chain and hook would pass through the loop on the top of the lantern to allow suspension from the rafters. Beautiful all over pitting giving a difficult to replicate rustic appearance. These types of lanterns are becoming more difficult to find in good condition. They are much sought after by garden designers and landscape architects to give an authentic accent to the many Japanese gardens abroad. Dimensions: 10" high x 11" x 14" (at widest point).

Sold 

A delightful Japanese solid cast-iron lantern dating to the Taisho period (1912-1926). Lanterns such as this were traditionally hung under the eaves above the entrance to a Japanese house to provide illumination in the evenings. A chain and hook would pass through the loop on the top of the lantern to allow suspension from the rafters (see detail picture). Beautiful details with each of the four window panels showing bamboo and plum blossoms and foliage. Fine detail on curved roof with rich texture to resemble roof tiles. This piece is in remarkable condition with hinges and latch still in sound condition. Beautiful all over pitting giving a difficult to replicate rustic appearance. Given the heavy and sustained rainfall in Kyoto (where this piece was purchased) these types of lanterns are becoming increasingly difficult to find in good condition. They are much sought after by garden designers and landscape architects to give an authentic accent to the many Japanese gardens abroad. Dimensions: 11" tall x 10" (at widest point). Can be used on a porch, verandah or garden path to provide spectacular illumination.
