Item description - YO23010049
Ryu 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 has a special authentic look and is purely based on the mythical dragons from Japanese and Chinese folklore. The handle on top of the lantern is even shaped like a beautifully detailed dragon. The name Ryū (竜) literally translates to dragon in Japanese.
