Mimbreno China - Santa Fe Railway Super Chief

1,000 years ago, artists of the Mimbres Culture painted their pottery with sophisticated geometric designs, spiritual and sometimes whimsical interpretations of the wildlife and nature surrounding them.  Their many different depictions of animals with decorated bodies are testimony to unique Mimbreño humor and creativity.

In 1936, Mary Jane Colter, an architect and designer for Santa Fe Railway and the Fred Harvey Company, was so moved by Mimbreño artwork that she created 37 Mimbreño style drawings to fit the dinnerware pieces she was designing for the dining car on Santa Fe’s premiere passenger train – The Super Chief.

Today, quality reproductions of the famous dining car china are proudly manufactured in the USA by HF COORS, under license from the BNSF Railway.  A full selection of this restaurant-weight china is now available in the Travel Town Museum Gift Shop for use in your own dining room or collector’s cabinet!
