Lyndsey Harvey, from Salisbury, believes the kitchenware – which was a wedding gift – was pilfered by a child after she left it outside with a note reading: ‘Help yourself to a treat’.
She has since seen her tweet go viral and received a flood of responses, with even John Lewis offering to help out with the hashtag #FindLyndseysSaladBowl.
Writing on Twitter on Thursday, the marketing and publicity professional said: ‘If anyone in Salisbury had a child return home from tick or treating with a BEAUTIFUL JOHN LEWIS SALAD BOWL, that is mine and I want it back.

‘”Help yourself to a treat” did not mean help yourself to my kitchenware. Halloween is the worst.’
Lyndsey later took to Twitter to explain that she had been bought the expensive salad bowl as a wedding present and was ‘stupid enough’ to leave it outside while she put her two-year-old daughter to bed.

Mike Hunt wrote: ‘I saw two dodgy looking Russian blokes carrying one just like it. They said they were on their way to the beautiful cathedral.’
Another quipped: ‘Putin has gone too far this time. He’s underestimating this country if he thinks we’re going to sit back and remain passive while our John Lewis salad bowls are going missing.’
It is thought the supermarket is in the process of arranging a replacement.
Another wrote: ‘This is what happened when you help indoctrinate children they can go around with their hands out and get free stuff. Next thing you know you find your favourite salad bowl becomes the free stuff as well.’
