Artist: Iannazzi Glass Design (Cambridge, MA)
In history, the ability of a hostess to adorn her dining room table with a pineapple for an important event said as much about her rank in society as it did in her ingenuity. Its rarity, expense, and striking beauty made it the ultimate exotic fruit. Today, pineapples are seen as the ultimate welcoming motif, symbolizing friendship and hospitality.
This beautiful handcrafted pineapple cup is hand-blown by Andrew Iannazzi in his studio in Cambridge, MA. Perfect for your favorite drink or as a great gift. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended, and avoid boiling liquids or extreme temperature changes. Please note, there may be slight variations in weight and detail due to the handcrafted nature of these glasses. Holds 12 fluid ounces.
