This real brass wired doorbell welcomes guests in two ways. First, the pineapple is a universal symbol for welcoming visitors. Second, the push button has the word “welcome” inscribed on the bottom footer.
In colonial days, when traders were out at sea, it would be improper for the lady of the home to receive guests. When the husband returned from his travels he would typically bring exotic gifts, fruits, and more back to his home. To show neighbors the spouse was home and could thus receive visitors, they would put a pineapple on the fence post….thus the universal symbol was born….or at least that’s the story I was told.
It’s probably not a good idea to put a fresh pineapple on your fence post but maybe you can settle for this solid brass, gorgeous push button as a symbol to visitors that guests are welcome in your home.
Available in a brass or brushed nickle finish, this doorbell button, with a lighted LED bulb will welome visitors at your door for years to come.
