Our Narabe Yukimi Japanese stone lantern is hand carved from natural silver grey granite in 5 pieces. This is easily one of the most popular styles of oriental Snow lanterns so named as the wide top lid protects the fire box underneath.
The beauty of Narabe Yukimi lanterns lies in their elegant lid with turned up corners and light box carved to the most exacting standards. Snow lanterns are most often used in Japanese water basin arrangements and need to be chosen with care to match the proportions of the water basin used.
For example, match a 45 cm ⌀ lantern with a 33 cm ⌀ stone water bowl. Similarly, a 60 cm ⌀ lantern is in the correct proportion to a 45 cm ⌀ water basin
The lantern is drilled to accept a low voltage light that we offer for an additional £19
This lantern comes in 5 separate pieces. You can leave the pieces sitting freely on top of each other. If you live in a particularly windy area or you are worried about children or animals knocking into the lantern you can stick the pieces together using a clear, outdoor adhesive such as Stixall.
The same lantern can be found in our Nara range and it is carved in a more rustic style and the granite has a more pronounced salt and pepper fleck; Narabe Yukimi Nara Japanese granite ornament,
