Antique Japanese Lantern

Item no: 2318

An antique Japanese Kasuga lantern carved from granite in six parts, the shaped roof and bud finial supported on a hexagonal lantern section. It was until recently stored at an overgrown outdoor site from which it has emerged intact apart from its original base which is missing. It has been replaced by a square base from the same source which is a good match in terms of colour and scale. It is a substantial feature and could be a key element in a Japanese themed garden. The term Kasuga describes lanterns with this general configuration and refers to the Shinto shrine in Japan which is famous for it's collection of stone lanterns.

19th or early 20th century.
