Story Behind the Art:
Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newly planted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
This bowl was a nice quality.. but it's not even remotely LIKE the one in the photo, which is what I thought I was getting. I think if the bowls are THIS VARIED, Overstock should put several photos online so you have an IDEA of what you might be getting. I wanted to put a photo of the bowl I got (its nice just not what I wanted) but I am unable to do it here.
The picture of is a deep, relatively thin-walled bowl, but this is really the opposite. It is too shallow to use as a salad-bowl, which is what I bought it for; I think it might have made a reasonable candy-dish. However, the craftsmanship was also very poor - the finish was not rubbed in and my fingers were a little oily from handling the bowl; it was not evenly sanded and still had saw-marks on it. I did not think this was a usable product at all, I was very disappointed. To Overstock's credit, they took an immediate return and under the circumstances, waived the shipping costs and returned 100% of my money.
A unique addition to the kitchen island. Got the extra large bowl to hold fruit. Works well. Everyone comments (positively) on the bowl first thing when they walk into the kitchen. It adds a rich touch.
The bowl is pretty and delicate not heavy it says food safe but it would be a shame to put salid dressing in it I can't see how it would not stain. I am giving as a Christmas gift and Ithink it will be received with enthusiam. all in all it pretty nice,they say the best gifts are thing you want for yourself so after Christmas I may have to go back and treat me
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The bowl is light weight ROOTS aren't hardwood so it is deceptive in what it looks like and how it feels to pick up
In the photo, the bowl looks like salad dressing could get caught in the crease. Is this correct? Or is the bowl smooth inside to prevent oil or dressing from getting caught as it would in a crevice or fold? The bowl was beautiful and I would like to purchase it if I was certain there would be no problem with nooks and crannies inside.pariscat01 on Nov 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello pariscat01, This unique bowl is intended for serving food or as a decorative conversation piece. The bowl does have nooks and crannies inside where salad dressing could potentially get stuck. We recommend a gentle hand washing to remove the food particles. I hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have additional questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 22, 2013
Is this product known as the ENRICO WOODWORKS 2240S, extra large salad bowl ?odol on Sep 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
"Features" says it's black and made of China. It's brown and made of wood. "Features" for products seem unreliable.zammer on Aug 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Sorry that information is incorrect. This is wood and wood color.
