A chopstick rest ('kuaizi zuo' in Chinese) is tableware, similar to a spoon rest, used to keep chopstick tips off the table and to prevent used chopsticks from contaminating or rolling off tables. They come in various shapes and are made from many materials; ceramic (as these) - also wood, plastic, metal, glass and even precious stones.
When setting a table, chopstick rests placed on the front-left side of the dishes, with the chopsticks parallel to the table edge and the points toward the left.
Chopstick rests and are an essential part of a table setting for any authentic Chinese (and/or Japanese) meal. You'll find a broad range of both Chopsticks and Chopstick rests in the Vectis Karma online store, both Chinese and Japanese - please see below and search.
