Once used on a provincial Chinese farm to hold water or animal feed, this early 20th-century stone trough is celebrated today for its organic form and rustic authenticity. Hand-carved from solid limestone, this rectangular trough exists on a slight tilt, exaggerated by its asymmetrical form. The trough has been carved with a shallow basin, rounded underside, and chiseled surface texture.

The rim of the trough curves up and down in a wave-like pattern, softened by the touch of many hands over the years. The surface of the stone has weathered with time, resulting in natural erosion and neutral color variation. A drainage hole is carved into one side, making the large trough ideal as a statement garden planter or unexpected sink basin.
