This square container was made over a hundred years ago to measure and hold a dou of rice, an ancient Chinese measurement. It is handcrafted with thin finger joints, iron-finished edges, and a gently arched handle. Marked by painted Chinese characters on each side, this antique measure has gained a richly aged finish and fantastic rustic appeal.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
