Exotic and rare in the 18th- century, the pineapple was an expensive delicacy for wealthy Williamsburg homes. Served with great flourish at dinner parties and used as a centerpiece in impressive displays, the pineapple became a symbol of welcome and hospitality. Pineapple motifs were therefore frequently used in architecture, ceramics, silver, textiles, and furniture during the height of the rococo period (about 1745 to 1770). Today the pineapple remains a hallmark of warm and gracious entertaining.
