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.
