Johnson Brothers Bagatelle Round Covered Vegetable Server
In addition to my memories back nearly 60 years, age has also been judged by the back stamp which does not include the statement that "All decoration under the glaze permanent and acid resisting colors" that was added at a later date. Pattern name is not listed on the backstamp. Pareek is actually not a pattern, but a shape name registered by Johnson Bros. in 1925 and most distinctly recognized by the handles on serving pieces. Under the logo it simply reads `Johnson Bros. England.' Microwave use and dishwasher not recommended.
Bowl itself is nearly perfect with no crazing to be seen. Only some of the gold trim along the top of the rim is worn where the lid has sat on it. The top of the lid shows minor crazing and the top of the handle shows a wear mark. There is also a mysterious gold `X' on this piece on the bottom adjacent to the logo, as well as a couple of normal manufactured flea bites. In addition to the back stamp, this piece is embossed, but it is unreadable. From the outer edges of the handle, the bowl measures 10-3/16 across with the bowl measuring 8-inches in diameter and stands 2-1/4 tall. Measuring across the top and under the handle, the lid is 8-1/2 inches in diameter. Gold trim shows little or no wear around the edge of the lid. A beautiful piece for the collector of Johnson Brothers early patterns. Other Bagatelle items to be listed soon.
