Annie Fields signature initials

It is relatively rare to find pottery dolls by Annie Fields, certainly one of the most famous Mojave potters. Partly responsible for the rarity of these is that the late Rick Dillingham of Santa Fe—author of two books, Acoma & Laguna Pottery and Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery—was an avid collector of such pieces and donated his large collection to the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, which published a book on his collection.

Annie Fields (1884-1971) was a member of the southern Colorado River Indian Tribe in California.  She created most of her figurines in the 1950s while working in Needles, California.  Most of her dolls are still in very good condition because they were made late in her career.   She made male and female figures, children in cradleboards, animals, and effigy vessels.
