Originally used in China to store rice, this handsome 19th century covered container is a perfect size for use as a small side table. The wood is Chinese pine, aged and worn to a rich patina. It is constructed of a number of curved staves fitted together to form a drum shape. Metal carrying rings on each side and one on the lid add interest to the design. The lid fits securely and is quite stable. The piece is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 14 1/2" (37 cm), diameter 18 1/2" (47 cm).
