Kusak Original Pineapple Vase
This is a Kusak Original, our 9 inch hand blown and hand cut crystal lead crystal vase was designed by Chuck Kusak, third generation owner of Kusak Cut Glass Works.
The history of the pineapple, as a symbol of home and hearth goes back to the New England sailors and shipping industry. Once trade developed in the west indies, and the northeast once arriving back for their months long journey, the captain and sailors would place a Pineapple on their front porch indicating they were welcoming visitors and friends to say hello as they safely arrived home.
It then became a symbol for home and hearth now widely appreciated throughout the world for joy and welcoming to all. We have only uncovered a limited number of these special vases, nine pieces, which will be truly a wonderful addition to your home. These crystal treasures will never be created again.
