This 19th century handled grain carrier was made over a century ago in the Shanxi region of China. It was used to hold and measure a dou, a Chinese measurement. This carrier was carefully crafted from cypress wood with dovetail joinery. The seams were "stitched" closed with iron fasteners to ensure that none of the tiny grains escaped. Its original lacquer has gained depth and character over time.

“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.”
