      Interesting piece. Many of the Mayan items that come out of Mexico during that era were actually made in Central America, Guatemala especially. They were funneled through Mexico and either sold there or moved north into the USA and sold. I have had good luck with the appraisal link at the top of the page getting help in identifying Mayan items I have. While it cost me a few bucks the information and value they provided was well worth it.

      I was told too look at Oaxacan Pottery the paper label Mexican look to it I know there were several Mexican artist the big problem is the potters mark identification

      Its not a mayan work of art but a signed piece .I dont care about value I am looking for the artist people who create a object like it enough to put their mark on it thats what I am trying to find the mark is a mayan chiefs head that doesn't mean its mayan but Mexican..so if you have seen the potters mark you can help me that way

      The Mayan's migrated into southern Mexico therefore it is quite possible it is Mayan but actually made in Mexico. In that it doesn't have a COO mark is also an interesting fact.
