Up for auction is a extremely Rare 3 cup teapot / coffee pot in the "California Poppy" pattern made for Fred Harvey for use on the ATSF Santa Fe Railroad dining cars & FH Eating establishments. This is one of the rarest pieces in the poppy pattern.

Teapot is in excellent condition. No chips or cracks & looks nearly unused. Clear and crisp decals. One small underglaze green smudge/ dot just under the upper rim (see pics). Super-shiny glaze! Marked on the back with the Syracuse China mark in green & date coded 99-b (Febuary 1970).
