A lovely and cheerful pattern named "California Poppy" made for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad system by the Syracuse China Company. The popular pattern was used not only by the railroad but also at Fred Harvey "Harvey Houses" that operated throughout the southwest along the routes of the ATSF. If the piece carries the backstamp "made exclusively for Santa Fe dining car service" it was definitely used in dining cars and demands a premium price. This plate is not so marked so could have been used by the railroad or Fred Harvey establishments. First produced in Europe about 1910, the "California Poppy" became the standard pattern for Santa Fe routes and was made by the Syracuse China Company in New York.
This dinner plate measures 9 3/4" across and is stamped in green "Syracuse China 99-F U.S.A." The date code "99" indicates 1970 and "F" indicates June. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some minor usage marks.
