I should clarify, as I meant to originally - these aren't the round, glass top key, but a half sphere, cast glass key if what I have read is correct.  When I am able I plan on posting a photo, but until then Machines of Loving Grace has a great picture here.

I was incorrect - these are a half sphere style key, but upon closer inspection are obviously plastic.  I am pretty sure the platen knobs are bakelite as well, having had the carriage slip out of my hands while I had it tipped, and shattering one.
