This Chulucanas vase is about 6.25" tall and 5" wide. It is purely decorative as the inside is not glazed. I let it soak for awhile prior to washing and the finish became splotchy from the soaking clay. Luckily, after a couple of days, it dried out and returned to normal. I paid $1 for this vase at a thrift shop in a small town about 30 minutes from my home. I could not make out the signature, but fancy that it is something like "Manuel Acheron". It may be the work of Manuel Adanaque. The word "Chulucanas" is just below the signature. What may be a date is below the last name. This is s typical type of inscription for Chulucanas pottery, but they are usually easier to read. Hard to photograph due to the contours of the piece, the coloring and the lighting I was working with. And, oh yeah, the sun got in my eyes!
