Fannie Nampeyo was Nampeyo of Hano's youngest child. She became the most famous potter of Nampeyo's daughters (b 1904, d 1987) and she helped Nampeyo with her pottery after Nampeyo's eyesight failed. She continued Nampeyo's tradition of the migration design, as is evident in the design on this bowl.

A very similar pot by Fannie Nampeyo was featured in Pottery by American Indian Women: The Legacy of Generations by Susan Peterson, and is in the catalog for a major exhibit of the same name that was at The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC, October 9, 1997-January 11, 1998 and at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, February 18, 1998-April 18, 1998 (p.114). The exhibit featured The Matriarchs of Pueblo pottery and the Matrineal Line of great potters.
