|A 19th century Chinese lidded rice container is an appealing shape and perfect size to take on a new role as a small side table with cultural connections. This late Qing era storage container is constructed of elm wood staves with three metal bands, handsomely done in the manner of many Chinese handcrafted utilitarian items of that period. Calligraphy on the bottom attests to its origins. With its pear shape and solid flat lid, this piece moves easily from its origin in rural China to a spot next to a casual chair to hold a book or a drink. Dimensions: height 14" (36 cm), diameter 16" (41 cm).|
