This rustic container was made over a hundred years ago to measure and hold a dou of rice, an ancient Chinese measurement. It is handcrafted with thin finger joints, iron-finished edges, and a subtly arched handle. Antique iron repairs reinforce the edges and thin strips of iron elegantly protect the corners of the base. Originally darkened by a black lacquer coating, this measure has gained a beautifully weathered finish from the touch of hands over a century.
