2016 Reproduction Pullman China Auction

posted Sep 18, 2016, 1:02 PM by James Lilly
In 1999, DCNRHS sponsored a reproduction of the classic Indian Tree pattern china used on Pullman railroad cars. This reproduction was made by Syracuse China, one of the original manufacturers. Based on the original designs and artwork from the Syracuse China archives, the reproduction was very well regarded in the railroad heritage community. Today, the reproduction china is enjoyed by many of the passengers on DCNRHS’ Pullman car, Dover Harbor. The reproduction was very popular and the production run was limited. Once DCNRHS sold out, no further china was produced. DCNRHS continues to receive inquiries periodically on the availability of the china and whether the Chapter would consider sponsoring another production run. Recently, DCNRHS has acquired four pieces of our reproduction Indian Tree china from a couple of antique stores. For those who may be interested, we are offering these pieces for sale in a sealed bid/blind auction to run over the next six weeks. This is a reserve price auction, which is open to DCNRHS members as well as the general public. Proceeds generated from this auction will benefit DCNRHS, a 501c(3) non-profit organization. Photos and descriptions of each piece up for auction are on page 2 of the attached flier, and the auction rules are on page 1. Please review the rules carefully--- and good luck with your bidding!  All bids must be received by October 15th.
