Antique Chinese Rice Bucket

SOLD

Traditionally, these Chinese buckets were used to carry rice and other grains from fields. Today, these buckets are treasured for their rustic design, beautiful patina, as a beautiful accessory and their usefulness. They can be used to place magazines, rolled towels, mail and to hide the remote. The bucket's wood joinery is supported and strengthened with metal bracing.

The Chinese designed an elaborate array of wooden and woven baskets, boxes, and buckets to carry and store things. Some were styled around specific uses--picnics, carrying fish, rice, or water. Some were used for special occasions like carrying "sweets" to a wedding party or a Chinese New Year celebration.

Today, many seem whimsical but always make a great accessory. Use them to hold your keys and mail, magazines, or hand-towels.

Silk Road Collection offers many types and styles of Asian boxes, baskets and buckets.
