Key to my Heart

Fifties Highball Glasses with Greek Key Mirrored Rims (LEO Design)

Of all decorative motif, the classic “Greek Key” is one of my favorites.  Perhaps it’s the angularity, the mathematical repetition, the “no-nonsense flair.”  I’ll buy nearly any handsome, antique item decorated with the meandering architectural embellishment! Mirrors, cufflinks, picture frames.  So, when I found these highball glasses—made in the 1950’s or 1960’s—I quickly cleared space for them in the glassware department.  Combined with the heavy, mirrored banding, these glasses will be a hit at your next toga party (or Versace costume fête).
