These candles are made in a vintage inspired reproduction dough bowl. Some may have knot holes, scratches, knife marks, saw blade marks or minor cracks. These are not defects. These are a natural part of a bowl that has been made from raw wood. They are handcrafted of solid wood with tons of carving marks to resemble the real deal. Size, color and shape vary, but average: 9.5” Long x 6” Wide.
