Item description
Metal lanterns are seen as sacred light sources in Japan. They are very often used in Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines all over the country. But also, in regular houses, in the garden or even indoors, authentic metal lanterns bring a one-of-a-kind soothing atmosphere. The light inside the lantern can be arranged in multiple ways, a candle or lightbulb for example. It is common to hang a metal lantern from the ceiling or the wall. Because of this the name in Japanese is Tsuridōrō (釣り灯籠), which roughly translates to hanging lantern. Of course, the lantern can also be beautifully put on display on the floor or a cabinet of some sort. Altogether this means that a Tsuridōrō is a multifunctional ornament with many marvelous options for variety.

This particular Tsuridōrō has many special detailed carvings, making it a very unique lantern. It was originally part of a Buddhist temple in the Nagoya area of Aichi prefecture. The intriguing egg-shaped appearance of the Tsuridōrō is where the classification Rankei (卵形) comes from. This is Japanese for egg-shape.
