Alder Wood Lathering Bowl
Our Alder Wood Lathering Bowl is handmade in Italy by local expert artisans. The lid is fire-branded with the Saponificio Varesino 1945 crown logo.
Sized specifically to store our shaving soaps between uses, it has been treated with a water-proofing agent to maintain its integrity and condition over time.
Due to the natural materials used for its production, some variation in wood grain and color from the images shown can be expected.
Bowl cracked after 1st use
Paid $80 for the bowl and it cracked right down the middle after one use.
Don’t waste your money. I purchased the Alder Wood shaving bowl. The wood must have been so dry that the very first time I started to use it, the wood swelled and it cracked. I obtained a replacement bowl after several attempts with their customer service. The second bowl also has issues. Again the wood swells when you use water, so this time the bottom of the bowl is warped and doesn’t lie flat. Honestly, it’s no more than a $20 wood bowl that you can probably find on Etsy, that they charge $70! Have to admit that the soaps and aftershave products are top notch. But this is a very poor item not up to this company’s brand reputation.
