|Apparently quite popular in its native setting of England, Pineapple is not often seen in the US and rarely commands much of a price. Above left is a table set. The butter dish, at back, has the pattern on the interior. European table sets did not have a spooner as did US patterns. Compotes, above right, may well have been substituted for the open sugar bowl. The pattern is found mostly in marigold but an occasional piece in amethyst or lavender shows up.|

|In 2010, Ellen Richardson sent me this photo of her Pineapple rosebowl-shaped compote. Not only is it a shape I'd not seen nor heard of before, it's also in a light blue or aqua. Most unusual and very attractive.
In 2021, a more conventionally shaped compote, flared and in amethyst, sold for $10.
