This is an old stone Japanese Yukimi-Doro/Toro or legged lantern comprised of 5 separate sections. Relatively low in height, they were used exclusively in landscaped gardens with the traditional placement being near the water such as a pond or stream. It measures 24" tall, 19.5" wide, 19.5" deep. Its age is from the late Taisho to early Showa era (1920's). The skilled craftsmanship to produce this lantern is evident in the detailed texture surface that was entirely hand carved.
