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. Most plates have a basketweave exterior, but some have a ribbed exterior and are considered more desirable.

In 2012 Tim Schwarz sent these photos of a white ruffled bowl in the Greek Key pattern that he had acquired. It was the first reported.

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.
