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.

“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.”
