Tin Chopstick Rests
Chopstick rests are the easiest way to perk up an ordinary meal. These tin chopstick rests come in shapes of tsukushi, lotus roots, knots and chili peppers. Tsukushi, or young field horsetail, is considered an early spring delicacy in Japan.
Tin gives off a beautiful silver color and subdued shine, making the chopstick rests look precious. They come in simple square packages that bear the maker's stamp.
