{FOUND Object} Vintage Carryall Tote - Rice Measuring Tray

$5 SHIPPING FOR EVERY STEAL

For those who missed it!


Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Is it amazing or what?


Knowing that this piece was once used in the 1920s to measure rice makes it even more special. Back in the olden days, before scales were invented, shops used this tote to measure rice. Different sizes were used to sell different weights and therefore charge different prices...

 

The cool thing though is that shops in the same province would only use the same shapes. In which helped buyers understand what they are getting... They come to us from the SHAN-XI Province in China...


This is a once in a lifetime chance to get your hands on these beautiful and hard to find pieces! We know because we have been trying to get them for a long long time! PLUS, did we cmention that we found replicas selling for more!!!???? Well, we really want to make your dream of owning authentic pieces that speak to you a reality :o)



This sturdy tote shows wear, discoloring, rust, scratches, age, timeworn marks, dust! All due to usage and old age… Please click on the arrows in the main photo above to see close ups and more shots… These buckets were once water tight, not sure if they still are today...

 
They are great tools for your kitchen, bathroom, office… Use them to store: Produce, cutlery, bathroom supplies, office supplies and craft supplies, toys, magazines, etc… Line a few up under a kitchen table and fill with produce, place three or so in your foyer for organized storage or simply use them as planters! We are TOTALLY in love with these functional beauties!


Enjoy,
