For the friend who has everything . . .

This antique pineapple holder (yep, that's right) is up for auction in Lisbon, Portugal today. Could this be a last minute gift for that friend who has everything? I really want to see a photo of this with a pineapple inside. I don't know why I think this is all so funny . . .

It's amazing what we take for granted nowadays. I imagine when this was made a pineapple was a quite a special treat. Beautiful glass!
