Not ENTIRELY sure this is the right place...

Postby lilrabbitfoofoo » Mon Aug 09, 2021 2:53 pm

So I'm going through my parents estate, and have come across some from Peru, and while I can't figure out manufacturer's yet, at least I know the country.

THIS one was with the others from Peru, but has me completely stumped, was hoping for some ideas?

Full size, I'd say it was a champagne bucket, but this is smaller. A LOT smaller. 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide at the top. But solid and heavy. Even too big for a split of wine I'd think.

Anyway, the marks on the bottom are what's completely stumping me, and after days of searching, I had to ask for help. Thoughts?

Hello
This form is called a chicha cup or quiru. It is a reproduction of an Inca drinking vessel, likely made for the tourist trade.
Sorry can’t help with the maker.

Just a wild guess on the C in AC: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=7477&p=15936&hilit=peru+a%27mano&sid=d4870aa1c9b91bda0c6eb8654cfb6d93#p15936

Nothing definite, but possibly a route to investigate.
