Protect your table and share your hospitality with this sophisticated set of silver-plate coasters. Each coaster in the set of six features an engraved pineapple. The pineapple motif appears on many antiques in the Colonial Williamsburg collections—chased onto silver serving pieces, carved into furniture, or printed on curtains—anywhere the prickly, sweet fruit could suggest gracious living. In the living room or den, these simple coasters will add a touch of practical elegance wherever they are placed.
The pineapple was an exotic, expensive delicacy in 18th-century Virginia. Served only on special occasions, it became the ultimate symbol of hospitality. As such, it also became a popular decorative motif in colonial homes. Lovely pineapple designs were embroidered on textiles, carved on furniture, cast in silver and incorporated into architectural elements.
