Since the days of Christopher Columbus, the Pineapple has been a symbol of wealth, hospitality and generosity. Pineapples were traditionally given as gifts to show friendship and affection. They soon became a popular decorative item and people have displayed them in their homes for centuries, especially during gatherings, to express a sense of welcome, warmth and good cheer.
The pineapple has recently made a resurgence in the cocktail world. This vintage inspired, 24 oz copper plated pineapple is “taking the world by storm.” So add some flair to your bar and cocktails with these beautifully crafted pineapples. The pineapple can also be used as a cookie jar, a special keepsake, candle holder or for decoration anywhere in the house!
