These sugar molds are quality reproductions of actual molds used in Mexico for centuries. Made from Spanish oak, they have the wear and individuality to make them truly rustic additions to your home décor. The sugar molds do vary slightly in appearance and shade of color and will likely have minor flaws such as knots, chips and minor cracks in the wood. Please understand these are wooden bowls made to look rustic from raw wood. Some may have knot holes, scratches, knife marks, saw blade marks, sap or minor cracks and blemishes. These are not defects. These are a natural part of the bowl that have been made from raw wood. Size, color and shape will vary. We do try to minimize these for each bowl. However, we cannot guarantee your bowl will not have any of these character marks.
