- Pattern: Greek Key Clear- Discontinued
- Made in Newark, Ohio, USA
- Antique: 1912 – 1938
- Description: It is rare to find such an old item by Heisey in such great condition. This is a pressed glass compote in their Greek Key pattern which is a simple yet beautiful pattern with the traditional Greek Key motif around the entire bowl. It is a footed piece with no pattern on the foot except for some cuts/lines. The Heisey “H” within a diamond mark is barely visible in the center of the bowl, but it’s there. We tried to get a picture of it but were unsuccessful. This is one of the most collected patterns from Heisey, we think because there are so many pieces to it, you can keep searching for a long time and have fun growing your collection. This dish is perfect as a candy/nut dish, displaying potpourri or any number of uses on the table or buffet as servingware and of course, as originally designed, for serving banana splits. We have four in stock, if you’d like all four, please contact us (use Contact Us form or email us at [email protected]) for a 20% discount.

A. H. Heisey was founded by Augustus H. Heisey, a German immigrant, in 1896 in Newark, Ohio. Augustus had worked for Ripley and Company, a glass manufacturer, and was also a trained glass blower. As he gained experience, he decided to build his own glass factory. You can always tell a Heisey piece by their mark: a diamond with an “H” in the center (older items from 1896 to 1900 do not have this mark). This remained the company’s distinguishing mark until its closing in 1958. A. H. Heisey died in 1922, then his son, Wilson Heisey, took on the role of leading the company. When Wilson died, in 1942, T. Clarence Heisey became the company’s new president. During it’s most prosperous time, the company employed almost seven hundred people. The company closed in December 1957 and sold all their assets to the Imperial Glass Company. They continued to produce some of Heisey’s items until 1984 when they went bankrupt.
