Tin Chopstick Rests
Chopstick rests are the easiest way to perk up what would otherwise be an ordinary meal. Here we offer tin chopstick rests in the shapes of tsukushi, lotus root, knot and chili pepper. Tsukushi, which looks like an asparagus, is young field horsetail and considered a delicacy of early spring in Japan.
Tin gives off a beautiful silver color and a subdued shine, making each chopstick rest look precious. Do not reserve these chopstick rests for a special occasion; instead use them at everyday meals. You will be happy to discover how these little things make your tabletop look special. Each chopstick rest comes in a simple square package that bears the maker's stamp.
