Comments about Wilton Armetale Large Pineapple Dish:
In the lore of old America, the pineapple stands as a symbol of *Welcome!* You'll find it used on carved newel posts, lamps, and in the artwork of historic American times. The pineapple is a particular favorite in the designs of the Old South.
**Wilton Armetale** has taken this symbolic pineapple and turned it into a shiny and detailed, hand-me-around **Wilton Armetale** dish. What a provenance-laden housewarming item! It's relatively easy to mail. Or, for a local presentation, you can fill it with special candies or fine nuts or, if your cup overfloweth, a heap of caviar.
**Wilton Armetale** comes with a considerable history of its own. From the (Pennsylvania) ***Susquehanna **Foundry*** of 1893 to a merger with the ***Wilton Brass Company***... From trivets and garden plaques and bottle openers... **Wilton** emerged in 1963 as the developer of a food-safe, aluminum-based alloy -- **Armentale**. **Wilton's** new role as a purveyor of unique modern serving items had begun.
In addition to my own **Pineapple Dish**, I've given several as gifts. Other **Armentale** housewarming possibilities might include a wine holder, a creamer and sugarbowl set, or the salad set seen below. The **Armentale** collections are wide and diverse, and now include glassware and ceramics as well as the original alloy products with both shiny and matte surfaces.
The **Wilton Armentale** website (*www.armetale.com)* offers the company history, pictures of all objects available (organized by collection, pattern or function), a care-and-use guide (easy to clean but NOT in the dishwasher), a factory store *and* a special section on ***weddings***. Immediately available when you log on is a video which demonstrates the extraordinary qualities of **Armentale**.
**Armentale** allows you to use its products for hot-hots and cold-colds. As party servers, in particular, **Armentale**'s retention of heat or cold is a tremendous plus. Dinnerware lines, of course, boast the same qualities. Yes! Your dinner *can* arrive piping hot on the table. Yes! Your lovely salad *will* stay chilled in its **Armentale** bowl.
I wait for 50%-off sales of **Armentale** at *Macy's* as my budget is slim. I'm eyeing the **Fruit** pattern next. For me, there's great pleasure in drawing pieces from different collections.
