This rustic container was made over a hundred years ago to measure and hold a dou of rice, an ancient Chinese measurement. The rice measure has a square form with tapered sides and edges trimmed with iron fittings to protect against damage. This measure has aged wonderfully, boasting a smooth, softened finish developed from the touch of hands over time.
