I'll come up with something in a minute.

Pineapple

While it’s hard to find the right keywords that will give me a history of it online, I find the idea of pineapple chic very interesting. They were such a status symbol at one time that people would get them, and then just keep them in the house until they rotted. They were worth like 5K each for a while there, so it was better to carry it around to show off you had it then it was to eat it.

The reason diamond chapped cross hatching was so popular on glass wear at one time is that it was mimicking the pineapple. That’s why lids sometime blossom out like that too. Not joking, all true.
