Antique Fulper Pottery bisque doll socket head

Fulper Pottery Company of Fleming, New Jersey was established in 1805.  From 1918 until 1927 Fulper Pottery made all bisque dolls and bisque heads to fill the void of German, French and other European doll makers due to World War I for the American doll industry.

Among the companies that used Fulper bisque products are; Amberg, Colonial Toy, Horsman and Sears.

Fulper produced bisque socket head or shoulder heads for dolly face child dolls 14 to 26" tall, some with human hair wigs, often with sleep eyes made of metal and celluloid, some heads have molded painted hair with intaglio eyes, all have an open mouth. 

Bisque socket or shoulder plate bent limb character baby dolls 13 to 24" tall, with sleep eyes and molded painted hair or wigged, open mouth, as well as an all bisque Kewpie Fulper marked doll and an all bisque Peterkin doll by Horsman have been found and probably others.

Fulper ceased manufacture of bisque doll heads in 1922, but continued to sell their inventory until 1927.  Fulper did make novelties and pin cushion heads after 1922.
