This rustic container was made over a hundred years ago to measure and hold a dou of rice, an ancient Chinese measurement. Hand-crafted with dovetail joints, the vessel has gracefully swelling sides and an arched handle, burnished from years of use. An unusual amount of care was taken by trimming the corners of the measure in iron fittings to protect against damage. This measure has aged wonderfully, boasting a smooth, softened finish developed from the touch of hands over time.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
