The design of the Portsmouth lamp is interpreted from an early nineteenth-century wallpaper in the collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
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 pineapples are carved into the mold of this tea caddy-shaped accent lamp from the WILLIAMSBURG collection.
