Beautiful Japanese stone lantern or garden rikyu-doro, Taisho period, 1912-1926.  Stone lanterns were traditionally used at Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples for votive lights and roadside illumination.  This style of granite folk lantern, with stone upon stone, housed an image of a Buddha or a monk figure at the base.  It was protected by the stones and brought blessings. The simplicity and smoothness of the stones gives this lantern a quiet elegance.  Very good condition.  Dimensions:  46 high, 24 diameter (top), 20" x 20" (base).
