The chopstick rest is Hizen Yoshida ware porcelain from Ureshino city (Saga prefecture). Hizen Yoshida ware has a history of 450 years, during which it has specialized in the manufacturing of practical tableware. Over the years in the Hizen area, a division of labour system was adopted wherein each highly specialized artisan is responsible for a step of the earthenware production process. Even now, many ceramic producers remain in this area.
