Guest Book
Matching pair of bronze temple lanterns clearly dated to the seventh year of the Meiji Era (1874), professionally retrofitted with electric lighting systems ca. 1960. Excellent condition and desirable patination.

Height: 78 cm
Roof diameter: 28 cm
Packaged weight: 19 kg

A notably handsome pair of early-Meiji bronze lanterns with fully functional electric lighting systems. Uncommon.
