Pineapple Cups Pure Unfinished Copper #2960
Our new improved design! We've removed the bottom leaves (pineapples don't have leaves there, what were we thinking?), tapered the cup for better waterflow with less splash, and added more detail to the sides of the cups.
The latest addition to our themed series, this chain is our playful rendition of the pineapple! Large leaves ring the top of the hand-tooled cup. All in pure copper, this chain brings to mind images of the perfect Hawaiian sunset, may tai in hand.
To prevent damage in transit and reduce packaging volume, the upper wires are shipped separately from the cups, so some assembly is required -- it takes just a few minutes with no tools.

The exceptional juiciness and vibrant tropical flavor of pineapple that balances the tastes of sweet and tart make them only second to bananas as America's favorite tropical fruit. Although the season for pineapple runs from March through June, they are available year-round in local markets. (And so are our rain chains!)
Pineapples are a composite of many flowers whose individual fruitlets fuse together around a central core. Each fruitlet can be identified by an "eye," the rough spiny marking on the pineapple's surface. Pineapples have a wide cylindrical shape, a scaly green, brown or yellow skin and a regal crown of spiny, blue-green leaves and fibrous yellow flesh. The area closer to the base of the fruit has more sugar content and therefore a sweeter taste and more tender texture.
