Item description - YO23010053
Nihon Teien Tsuridoro, Japanese Antique Metal Lantern - 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 beautifully crafted and has a wide variety of skillfully made carvings. The very detailed carvings of for example teahouses, bridges and pagodas are all an integral part of the traditional Japanese garden. This formed the foundation for the name Nihon Teien (日本庭園), which is Japanese for the Japanese garden.
