This rose is absolutely beautiful and is very satisfying to just sit and look at. Very pretty to have on after dark. My kids were in awe when they first noticed it. I also love the little touches added like to the base. Looks like falling petals strew around the base of the rose. The wood base is very sturdy and suits the vase well. It is glass and wood which calls for a beautiful item. Would be pretty for a disney princess lover for Christmas. Looks just like the rose from beauty and the beast. Uses 3aaa batteries.
