This is not perhaps the easiest to use chopstick rest, but it's undeniably cute. The material is a tough ceramic, no concerns about durability. The grey finish is a semi-gloss gunmetal color, and identical to the Sleeping Cat Grey, though it doesn't look like it in pictures due to lighting--probably matches other grey items as well.
I bought this as a gift and it's super cute and just as shown in the photos. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a sake shaped chopstick holder.
