These paper and wood laterns are from the late Edo and Meiji periods. They normally use and an oil and wick device; usually a small dish and some form of spike and open in a variety of ways. Some have lift panels or a handle to raise the dish or a panel which rotates open. Our recently arrived container includes a selection of more than 40 of these hand-crafted lanterns. The paper panels have been restored using woodblock printed vintage manuscripts.
