The pineapple pattern was produced at the Whieldon, Greatbatch and Wedgewood Potteries in the mid 18th century period.
NOTE: The fruit first appeared in England in the 17th century and during the 18th century, they became a popular symbol of opulence and luxury. It was fashionable to depict them in paintings, furniture and ceramic to indicate the owners social standing and affluence. Pineapples were so expensive that some merchants actually provided a rental service at great cost to aspiring socialites.
