HELLO, Since I have been back on e bay I have been a little slow with my information. I have been away from the hobby too long. Glad to be back and thus I need to add to the description of this rather large compote of which was manufactured by Burley - Germany (the early 1900,s) especially for the FRED HARVEY -SANTA FE SERVICE and in the CALIFORNIA POPPY PATTERN. The compote has the rolled rim and is of the heavyweight china. I am not at all sure if Burley pieces had the full back mark.This piece is not back stamped So I suspect that this piece was used in Fred Harvey House Service. I could be wrong too as it may have indeed been used aboard Santa Fe trains as well. The piece is quite excellent with nice shine and very light use with the usual small blemishes that you know restaurant ware of this period has. There is a slight tilt to the compote, have seen this many times with some stands like this. There is no chips or cracks and just a slight hint of storage markings - a couple of stacking dings or glaze bubbles on the rim, not chips. The interior of the compote is real nice , hardly any use. The piece rings beautifully.The interesting thing about this piece is the POPPY markings on the base as well making it extra nice and colorful. The poppies are real nice. I will add another picture so as you may view the piece with all floral design present. The compote measures about almost 9'' across and stands about 4 /2 if I am looking correctly. The bottom is perfect, really the entire compote is near perfect and remains a rare version and rare manufacturer for the Santa Fe. Again, this is the heavy authentic version that was used by the railroad and not at all the souvenir stuff that surfaces from time to time. The piece is beautiful and will look superb in your collection of Fred Harvey - Santa Fe items and just any railroadiana collection. Note: As long as I have been collecting railroadiana and California Poppy I have seen only a few Burley pieces surface in Poppy. This is my first Burley - Chicago piece in compote form. Grading this piece - Excellent - Used - Close to Near Mint.On Jul-02-13 at 14:04:45 PDT, seller added the following information:
