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. 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.
