Kasuga-style standing stone lantern (Jp. tachigata ishi-doro) sculpted in six parts from a high-quality fine-grained granite. Late-Edo Period~early-Meiji Era ca. 1875. Desirable old loss as well as softening of the lines and contours overall. Light lichen accumulation.

Height: approx. 175 cm

A notably handsome, well-executed Kasuga-style standing stone lantern, sourced from the gardens of a private residence in central Tokyo.
