AB 59-12 a, b

This hashi setto, or chopsticks (ohashi) and case set, features a pair of bamboo chopsticks with ivory tips. The chopsticks are a rectangular shape at the top and taper to a point at the bottom. They are stained dark brown. The case is made of bamboo with an ivory cap. A long crack runs along one side of the case.

Chopsticks are short, usually tapered sticks used in pairs of equal length. They are the traditional eating utensils of China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. 

Donated by Mr. Edmund Johnson, 1956.
