This finely crafted rice measure with corners reinforced with iron was made over a century ago in the Shanxi region of South China, where the grain thrives because the climate is warm and wet. Over thousands of years Chinese farmers developed many varieties of rice: Some were bred to be drought-resistant, while others were bred for early ripening or brewing rice wine.

“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.”
