Pineapple - Black Antigua, or Jagged Leaf Black Antigua, Plate LV Pomona Britannica, 1812

By George Brookshaw (1751-1823) was born in Birmingham, England. When he moved to London as a young man, he worked as a cabinet maker on intricately designed pieces of furniture, which came to the notice of the royal family.  At the beginning of the 19th century, he practiced engraving and embarked upon Pomona Britannica. Its 90 hand-colored prints of fruits are regarded as the best ever produced. The plates, some showing groups of fruits together, were designed to give professional aid to estate owners and gardeners to distinguish individual varieties of fruits.

Christopher Columbus and his sailors were the first European to see the pineapple.  In the 18th century they were considered the “Queen of Fruits” and in the book, each is given its own page, with a brown background to put the fruit in its best light.
