Greek Key, Northwood
Greek Key is a traditional pattern used on many types of decorative items. It's used on a number of Carnival patterns but dominates the design of Northwood's Greek Key water sets, bowls and plates. The pitcher and tumbler have additional design elements; fan shapes above and hanging pendants below.

A Greek Key bowl in white
In 2012 Tim Schwarz sent me these photos of a white ruffled bowl in the Greek Key pattern that he had acquired. It's the first I've heard of and I could find no sales of any white piece in the pattern going back 20 years. Remarkable what sometimes shows up. In late 2012, it sold at auction for $2,600.

Shortly after posting these photos and comments, I received an email from Travis Reyan who said he remembered seeing a similar bowl in Don and Becky Hamlet's collection. Don confirmed it.

Greek Key and Scales
These ruffled bowls, with a domed foot and the greek key pattern on the exterior, were not made from the same mold as the plates and bowls above. Most have a stippled rays interior, though a few have a plain interior. Regardless, such items are often referred to as Greek Key.

Bowls, dome footed
