Foreign Friday

Cast-iron Lantern
April 1980

These lanterns were used throughout Japan. Some were round; others, square. I am kicking myself for not purchasing one while I was there.

  1. Why were these used in Japan? Perhaps you could find someone at a Art Fair to fashion one for you from metal?

  2. I've seen versions of these, designed to be used indoors as a decorative accent. They are not nearly as nice as the one in your photo and they are usually not cast iron.

  4. Gosh...You didn't bring any of those lanterns home?? They certainly are lovely. Make sure they're on your list for the next trip ;)
