Anne Harriet Fish (Sefton) was born in Bristol, England. She worked in oil, watercolor and was an illustrator who was active in London, Sussex and St. Ives, Cornwall. She married Walter Sefton in 1918. In New York City, she did illustrations for "Vanity Fair" and "Vogue" including the cover for "Vanity Fair" in April, 1917. Around the time of the First World War porcelain doll heads were no longer available from Germany, and so Fulper Pottery makers of Flemington, New Jersey, among others, made some. This was a new clay body for them as their regular line of pottery was made from stoneware clay.
After the war, the market for the Fulper heads dried up, but Fulper still had the know-how for porcelain production. So, they introduced a line of ceramic novelties made from porcelain which don't even vaguely resemble their art ware line. Among others, they hired Anne Harriet Fish (Sefton) to do some design work for them and were likely produced around 1921-1925.
