Although pretty, it was not what I thought it would be. It was too tiny for our purposes. The top of the bottle is not secure, which is not good when using oil. I would have returned it but we needed the oil.
The alabaster container is very attractive and small enough for me to take on travel. I used it at a bible study for my Grandmothers 102nd birthday celebration. Although the base had a chip it was not noticed.
