Kusaki Tsuridōrō, Japanese Antique Metal Lantern
Item description - YO23010051
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.
Its authentic green color gives the Kusaki Tsuridōrō a very beautiful appearance. The round panels on each side of the lantern represent different types of plants and greenery such as flowers and bamboo. The panels are surrounded by a skillfully made gridwork that represents the roots of the plants. The strong focus on greenery formed the foundation for the name Kusaki Tsuridōrō. Kusaki (草木) is Japanese for plants.
