Item description - YO23010047
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 is fairly antique and in very good condition. The lantern was made during the Japanese Meiji period and a birdcage was highly likely used as a basemodel. The classification Kaidori (), meaning domestic bird in Japanese, is given to this Tsuridōrō model. Its unique shape and intriguing carvings make it a special authentic lantern.
