This is a wonderfully small brass pineapple ice bucket and apple fruit wedge holder for serving cocktails and is a fabulous bar accessory. The brass pineapple ice bucket is a classic but I have never seen the mini one with its matching apple fruit wedge pot. This would serve as a chic display or the perfect gift.
The influence of the pineapple fruit is apparent in the enchanting array of decorations available that use the pineapple form as part of its creation which demonstrate and air of friendliness . The pineapple has indeed a colorful history spanning from colonial times and is today heralded as the princess of fruits and credited as the symbol of hospitality and welcome. The pineapple began initially as the fruit of the wealthy and guests were revered and charmed when a pineapple was placed amidst their presence in the dining area for that indicated the amount of respect and consideration the hostess besot upon them.
