This foot roller served two purposes. First it kept feet from resting on the floor which, in China, keeps one's feet out of the damp. Second the rollers actually roll, providing a soothing massage to the feet. Yes, I have tried it, and yes it does feel good. This roller is beautifully made. Please note the horseshoe cuffed feet and the line scroll work around the edge. About 100 years old.
