Hexagonal Kasuga-style stone lantern (ishi-doro) sculpted in six pieces from a gray-hued igneous stone, probably a type of andesite, with the Tokugawa clan's triple-hollyhock-leaf mon (crest) incised on each face of the roof and a single stylized hollyhock leaf incised on each face of the central dais. Early- to mid-Edo Period ca. 1675. Old loss and repairs, most notably to the central dais and the tapered pedestal.

Height: 142 cm
