As an artisanal icon of warmth and hospitality, the handblown glass pineapple adds a sophisticated touch to your entryway, mantel, or centerpiece display. Expert glassblowers hand-pull the crown of the pineapple to create a distinctly textured look and truly one-of-a-kind piece.

​​The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. Sea captains of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum. The captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink, and listen to tales of his voyage.​ Handmade by Simon Pearce glassblowers using centuries-old techniques.
