The pineapple was a rare and expensive fruit in the colonies and symbolized the spirit of hospitality. As such, it was a popular and recurring design motif in eighteenth century decorative arts--and still the sign of hospitality today.

The colorful floral design of the Portsmouth Pineapple Jar is interpreted from an early nineteenth-century wallpaper in the collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Gold highlights.
