Capsule Lanterns Facts and Features
Capsule lanterns present a unique design that blends together the traditional lantern shape and style of the Gifu lanterns in Japan and the classic even-ribbed construction of the lanterns in China. Each capsule lantern is constructed with a collapsible frame and is intricately-handcrafted with thin metal wire that is coiled around an oblong-shaped internal template and covered with rice paper, nylon, or silk fabric.
