      It's a traditional chicha (a type of fermented drink) bowl, from the Amazon region of Ecuador.

      There are several neighboring tribes who make very similar pottery, which is difficult to distinguish from each other. It could be Ashuar, Quichua, or Shuar, depending on the specifics of things like the source of the sap used to coat the finished pot, subtle differences in the form itself, or the painted designs. The Shuar make very little pottery today, however, so it is most likely from the Ashuar or Quichua.

      These bowls were made by native peoples in either Ecuador or Peru. It could be by the Shuar or Achuar in Ecuador. But their wares are very similar to some pottery made by the Shipibo and Quichua in Peru and some of the Amazonian Quechua in Ecuador. CanyonRoad might be more familiar with the small [to me] details which distinguish them.

      I think it is by the Achuar [Ashuar].
