That's disappointing, it's such a great looking bowl, i wish someone would produce something similar in stainless.Looks great!!!
Mine started losing the lacquer inside the bowl after 30 uses or so and there was some white film where it was coming off and I could scratch it off with my finger nail. There’s now about 1/3 of the finish left inside the bowl. Outside still looks great. If it travels outside I might strip it off as you did. These are wonderful bowls!
There was a white greasy film left from a new cream I was trying, I poured boiling water from the kettle in but too hot and the finish turned cloudy. I love the bowl and to be honest I like it even more now it's shiny. I doubt I'll be bothered to keep it that way though, I shall see how it turns out and post pics in the future.Looks good..any ideas what caused the white film? Moisture getting under the finish perhaps or was it more of a stain? Mines still going strong with the original finish but in saying that its fairly new. Interesting though as I’m guessing its a similar coating that is used by razor manufacturers to seal brass/bronze razors in an attempt to prevent tarnish. Please keep us updated.
It is a great looking bowl for sure.I’d like to have one of these just for the cool factor. I don’t bowl lather anymore. But this bowl is one of the coolest I’ve seen. The craftsmanship behind it really makes it one of a kind.
+1 They are excellent bowls. I use mine for creams & samples. I also pull out the bowl & use on occasion instead of face lathering.They are fantastic bowls. I face lather my soaps but I do enjoy using the Copper Lather Bowl for Creams. It is just a well made product and it fits great in my hand.
