Black Greek Keys on Lime - 1967
The Greek Key design came about following a chance find by Susan in the Kirkham's archives of a copper plate with the Greek Key pattern on it. Brought into production in 1963, the original design was adapted to silkscreen and used on a whole range of products from coffee sets to storage jars and rolling pins. They were produced in both Black Key and Gold Key on a black and white body. New colours of turquoise, orange, yellow, purple, brown and lime green were produced in 1967. Gold Keys on matt black became the most common combination, carrying on until 1983. All combinations became design classics and as such are very collectable.
