This handcrafted container was made to measure one dou (about ten liters) of rice: one of the staples of Chinese cuisine. It was carefully crafted with dovetail joinery then finished with iron fasteners. Over time, the wood has aged with tremendous character. The characters on the side read "authentic" with the name of the rice vendor.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
