13 Ivory Chopsticks – made in Hong Kong?
From Newsletter 7, 30th June 2013
Hugh Farmer saw an AFCD sign by the path leading to Sheung Yiu Folk Museum, Sai Kung, which said,
“Rough leaves of the sandpaper vine, Tetracera Asiatica, were used for polishing ivory chopsticks and tinware…”
I wonder when, where and by whom such chopsticks were made in Hong Kong?
