Other than resembling silver, pure tin also has natural antibacterial properties. When it comes to items used for handling food, like the Nousaku Tin Cutlery Rests with Traditional Good Luck Symbols, this is an added bonus that, together with their beautiful design based on traditional Japanese patterns and their outstanding craftsmanship that's rooted in the metalworking history of Takaoka in Toyama Prefecture, all makes this set a must-have for anyone who enjoys a Japanese touch even in a Western meal!
Unlike most Japanese serveware, the Nousaku Tin Cutlery Rests with Traditional Good Luck Symbols come in a set of six rests in five different designs. There's one each of the turtle, wave, gourd, and nandina (sacred bamboo), and two plum designs. All are considered symbols of good fortune. This is the reason they are often used in everything from New Year decorations to fabric patterns. At 2 x 89 x 34 mm (0.07 x 3.5 x 1.3") each, these rests fit most knife, fork, and spoon combinations, and come in a beautiful, classic paulownia wood box for storage – or display!
