Meriden Greek Key/Alhambra Bowl – SOLD
There’s not much to say about this pattern that you don’t already know. Greek Key is one of the most desirable and unique patterns of the Brilliant Period for obvious reasons.
The first thing one notices when examining a piece of Alhambra is the unusual dental rim. Often damaged or poorly repaired, this one is in tip-top shape and I’m almost sure is original. Below the castle-like top is a chain of cut and unpolished Greek key. The rest of the Alhambra pattern is composed of chains of hobstars and bands of cane. The cutting on this bowl is considerably precise, tight, and sharp and the glass is beautifully clear.
The bowl measures 8″ wide and 4 1/8″ tall. It’s in near mint condition with no chips or flakes. Your chance to own one of the most popular patterns of the Brilliant Period.
