The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality going back to colonial times. Seafaring men returned from their voyages with shiploads of tropical spices and fruits. To announce their arrival home, the men would attach a pineapple to the fence post inviting relatives and neighbors to drop by for a visit.
One or two of these pineapple lamps would look wonderful on a sideboard, fireplace mantel or bedside tables.
