About this item
A magnificent antique Chinese rice measure basket - a beautiful piece that will add charm and character to any setting.
A testament to the remarkable craftsmanship of ancient Chinese culture, this piece would have originally been used in the early 20th Century as a way of measuring out a “dou” of rice, an ancient Chinese measurement.
Made of sturdy wood, with metal joints and support straps, this basket has a strong handle that makes it easy to carry.
It's beautiful, aged patina gives the basket a rustic, antique feel that cannot be replicated by modern counterparts – making it the perfect choice for use as a decorative display piece, adding a touch of elegance to any room. Or, if you're looking for something functional, this basket also works well as a garden trug or next to the fireplace as a container for holding kindling.
A remarkable piece of history that has stood the test of time.
In good antoque condition with wear and tear appropriate for age and use to include historic woodworm (no longer active) splits to the wood, knocks and scuffs.
