About

From our recent Japanese acquisitions travels. Japan, a fine early classic "yukimi" lantern hand carved in granite stone, measures: 35 inches high and 28 inches wide at top, five pieces. They work especially well at night with an oil candle. See our photo. Upon request, we will include one complimentary bottle to get you started. Taisho period, early 20th century Good condition with dark patina from weathering and appropriate age. The striking and well proportioned hand carved sculpture is fashioned in five parts from granite as roof kasa and light chamber or base Hibukuro or kiso all with substantial patina from good age. Hand carved of a quality shirakawa stone Provenance: old Japanese garden, near Kyoto History of Yukimi lantern: Yukimi-doro or legged lanterns have as a base not a post but from one to six curved legs, and a wide umbrella with a finial either low or absent. Relatively low, they are used exclusively in gardens. The traditional placement is near the water, and a three-legged lantern will often have two legs in the water, and one on land. The umbrella can be round or have from three to eight sides, while the fire box is usually hexagonal. Yukimi denotes water reflection. This form was probably developed during the Momoyama period, but the oldest extant examples, found at the Katsura Villa in Kyoto, go back only to the early Edo period . Only one available.
