0010118: «grown wolf bone earring»
In a citron wood chest in a dungeon under a keep in a town, I found a «grown wolf bone earring», described as follows:

This is a grown wolf bone earring. It is decorated with chestnut.

Is it referring to the chestnut decoration? I'm not sure. But anyway, it seems potentially like a bug.

Cute. I've seen grown linen clothing brought by elves, as well. :V

What specifically is the issue here? "Is is"? "Grown wolf bone"?

2017-01-20 16:59   
I'm guessing the issue is that only wooden things should logically be "grown".
2017-01-20 18:31   
Ah, yeah, that sounds like an issue. It's possible that "grown" is referring to the chestnut decorations, but if so, it's in the wrong place. There was also a mention of this at 0009275:0034102, but there's no wood involved there at all.

Elves are only allowed to kill animals in self defense, the example of a rampaging carnivorous wolf or a forgotten beast invasively forcing them to retaliate would fit the criteria with the 'grown' applied afterwards in goods generation to make it ethical to barter & own.

Anecdotally i had a goblin (i edited the raws a bit) scribe a book on demon fiend parchment which had died within the dark-fortress, so they will re-use materials of fallen animals/invaders if it fits criteria to own & sell.

It makes more sense if you interpret "grown" as "elf-kosher": since all the wood parts are "elf-kosher", the resulting item is also marked "elf-kosher". Using a different (elven) word instead might make the distinction a little clearer.

Do items decorated by dwarves using elf-grown wood logs still receive the "grown" description?

@lethosor: there are apple wood decorations on the "grown" piccolo in 0009275.

It is*

Loci: thanks for checking on that - I was going by the original comment.

Hinaichigo: I assume you meant that the original issue should be changed to "It is", so I'll do that. Let me know if I misinterpreted your comment.

That's what I meant, thanks.
