Go-shaku masu – Antique Japanese wooden measuring box 19c

  • Go-shaku masu - Antique Japanese wooden measuring box 19c

‘Go-shaku masu’ (5 shaku masu) as a necessary living tool for measuring grains. (*’Shaku’ – a unit of volume in old Japanese system of weights and measures (1 shaku = 0.018 liters))
Somehow but actually a sacred creation as is, with well-dried and “melted” texture, with naturally well-smoothened edge for high frequent use for the years. Aesthetic for hand and for sight. approx. 8.7 x 8.7 x 5.2 cm (3.42 x 3.42 x 2.04in)
