This item is extremely heavyweight and solid, in a way that feels like it is made to outlive its owner. It looks beautiful but wholesome and rustic at the same time and would look great in any kitchen. It accommodates any standard sized kitchen rolls but not extra large ones, due to the height. The only improvement I can think of would be the addition of a hinge to the topper to hold the roll in place as it decreases in size. The packaging is rather exquisite and it would make a great present in my opinion.
