Hakuichi Golden Crane Kanazawa Gold Leaf Chopstick Rest Pair
Decorate your table with a beautiful pair of golden crane chopstick rests.
These chopstick rests are designed in the shape of cranes made by folded origami. In Japan, cranes are birds that are symbolic of longevity. These auspicious chopstick rests are made by skilled artisans at Hakuichi applying thin sheets of gold leaves to a Mino-ware base.
The end of the chopsticks fit nicely between the tail and wings. And the weight of the Mino-ware base stabilizes the chopstick rest when the chopsticks are placed on or removed from the rest.
These golden cranes can also be used as ornaments on a table or on a side table. Place them in a table setting for a special occasion or a Japanese style meal.
This pair comes in a well-designed box with the Hakuichi brand name stylishly printed on the lid. Send this pair as a gift to a couple, sending them wishes of longevity and happiness.
