An absolutely remarkable feature lighting range incorporating the pineapple. There are so many exotic fruits to choose, yet the pineapple has for centuries appeared in numerous traditional lighting styles and in all honesty looks aesthetically in place. But why the pineapple? And why is it traditional?
In 1642 on Christopher Columbus’s second voyage across the Atlantic, he and his crew went ashore to explore the Caribbean Island of Guadaloupe, it was deserted, but they found stores of recently picked fruit and vegetables, amongst these where large prickly fruits that they had never encountered. The taste was sweet and delicious.
Sugar and sweet tasting food was such a rare commodity in those days, only Royal’s and the extreme wealthy could enjoy these, and so the pineapple became a statement of wealth, it’s image became a monument of this symbol and it’s image soon started to appear in household designs such as lighting and stone features to adorn the residence of the wealthy.
