This attractive lantern is a new addition to our ever increasing range of products for oriental gardens and is very similar in shape to our Kiku water basins. The carved detail follows the form of the Chrysanthemum flower, which is highly honoured in Japanese culture. The ‘fine bush hammered’ surface of the lantern results in a uniform light stipple appearance.
The Kiku lantern is carved from natural silver grey granite, and is available in two heights; 120cm & 150cm. The base blocks are approx. 42cm x 42cm & 55cm x 55cm respectively.
This lantern comes in 6 separate pieces and is drilled to accept an electric light. Providing the base stone is located on a level, firm base the other pieces will stand one on top of the other quite happily. However, if you are concerned that children or animals may bump into the lantern you can stick the pieces together using a transparent, outdoor adhesive such as Stixall.
