It was a little disappointing in size, I was expecting it to be lager ( salad bowl size) than it is. It is more like a size of a cereal bowl instead. Too me paying almost $**.** for it was not worth the price for that size.
I bought this as a gift for someone who seems to like nothing anyone ever buys him - unless he specifies what you buy. He is an extraordinary chef and I thought this was unique. I have never seen him so happy after opening a present from me!! He was ecstatic! I had read mixed reviews so was a bit nervous about the purchase- but the size and workmanship was perfect, just like the picture. This is a winner!!
This hand carved piece is beautiful! It is perfect for keeping sea salt or other frequently used spices at hand in a unique way.
The carving is going with the wood grain making it a pleasure to look at too.
Great gift idea for the chef in your life...
