in-the-horniman:

This is a cangue, a set of stocks from China. From the 8th year of the Kangxi period (1669) onwards, serious Manchu criminals were confined in the cangue as punishment, but would be released after a short period of time (10 days or more). The writing on the cangue indicates that it was used in Shanghai, and lists the date of the prisoner’s release.

The weight of a cangue would be varied depending on the severity of the prisoner’s crime.
