This finely crafted 19th century wood carrier was made in the Shanxi region of China to measure out one dou—about 10 liters—of rice. Its creamy coloration is unusual and attributed to the natural aging of the original lacquer over time. The hand forged iron hardware is also original and adds tremendous character to the piece.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
