Japanese Fine Antique Bronze "Flowers & Bamboo" Umbrella Lantern 100 Yrs Old

About

From our recent Japanese travels Japan, a superb, handsome antique bronze "Flowers & Bamboo" umbrella form lantern - the first of this design we have had the honor of owning. It dates to the later Meiji period, 1900. Virtually mint condition with a lovely brown even patina- just the way we like to find them. May be suspended or placed on any surface with its strudy feet on bottom. Meiji Period, circa 1900 Fine quality. Dimensions: 16.5 inches tall and 8 inches diameter An unusual opportunity to own the finest. This is the first of this style we have seen in over fifteen years of dealing with fine Japanese garden ornaments. Quality: Crafted from heavy bronze with engraved features by Japanese specialized artisans over 100 years ago. Only one. Provenance: Old Japanese Kyoto collection. Many of our customers place oil candles inside the main section making a romantic and enjoyable decorative accent for entertaining friends and family. It's a perfect choice for your indoor or outdoor garden space. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee. We are members of the North American Japanese Garden Association (NAJGA) specializing for ten years now in old and authentic Japanese stone garden ornaments. History of Japanese lanterns: In Japan a to¯ro¯ (lantern) is a traditional lantern made of stone, wood, or metal. Like many other elements of Japanese traditional architecture, it originated in China. In Japan, to¯ro¯ were originally used only in Buddhist temples, where they lined and illuminated paths and lighted lanterns were then considered an offering. In its complete, original form the lantern represents five elements of Buddhist cosmology: Bottom touching the ground, represents chi, the earth, the next section represents sui, or water, ka or fire, is represented by the section encasing the lantern's light or flame, while fu¯ (air) and ku¯ (void or spirit) are represented by the last two sections, top-most and pointing towards the sky. These last two sections express the IDEA that after death our physical bodies will go back to their original, elemental form.
