This is a new addition to our more rustic line of lanterns in Spring 2023. The Kokusen toro and its symmetrical orientation of the roof and firebox base give these a windswept appearance. Imagine one of these marking the entry to a hermit (inja) cave high-up on a mountain side...
As will all our lanterns, these are drilled to accommodate lighting wire.
A note about shipping damage vs. minor flaws in our stone lanterns and basins. Obvious damage/breakage is rare and we will replace any piece that suffers major shipping damage OR provide a $ credit if the damage is repairable by the customer. Minor chipping is not included in this replacement/repair policy.
Minor flaws/irregularities sometimes will occur during the crafting process as most items go through a flame-thermal treatment at the end of production to give the finished surface a more consistent and natural texture. Natural stone will sometimes react inconsistently during this process and irregular surfaces will occur. We feel this is part of the crafting of these natural stone pieces and that it adds authenticity to them - setting them apart from cast or molded imitations. We do not offer refunds or credits for this type of condition and will not ship an item if we feel we wouldn't want it in our own garden!
