Vintage Japanese Kasa (Umbrella) Travel Lamp Andon Washi Paper Lantern with Box
Japanese Kasa (Umbrella) Andon Washi Paper Travel Lamp w/ Original Box. Gorgeous Handmade Washi Paper incorporates colorful Japanese Maple Tree leaves for a striking umbrella-type lampshade. This was an estate find and I dont know the history or age of the piece. Have seen similar postings listing 1930s and 1950s. Lamp pieces were still factory wrapped and undone only to photograph for posting.
Condition is exceptional for age of item. No tears or signs of wear/use. Measures approximately 22 high, 17 wide when assembled.
I recommend using a low wattage bulb, such as LED, as this lamp is primarily bamboo/wood/paper. Pictures were taken with such a bulb.
