The two Imari style chopstick rests are formed as left and right porcelain pillows in miniature. Their details are exquisite. There were definitely seasoned artists manning the brushes to decorate them. Their facial features are fine and delicate; red lips, blushing cheeks, eyebrows, eyelids, lashes, & black pupils. The heads of the reclining figures rest on folded arms. They have coats decorated with flowers and painted braids. The pants have the same painted braids. Slippers are outlined in red. The beds / cushions are painted in the reds, blues, and golds of the Imari style. Their dimensions are 3.25 inches across the base (unglazed), 4 inches across the widest point, and 2 inches in height. The four smaller figures are decorated in the same manner, but the work is of a lesser quality. Measuring 2 5/8 x 1 inches, these smaller figures would be best to rest your chopsticks on while the two larger ones look on as decoration. Together, the six would make a great grouping to go with your Asian-themed serving dishes..
