‘Monkey pot’

Problem: ‘Monkey pot’

Corrine Schlessel writes: I found this unusual Monkey pot/vessel at a local thrift shop. The interior is somewhat cruder than most pottery I’ve seen, which admittedly is not much. I would be interested in knowing anything about its possible history and also its monetary value. Somehow, I thought it may be Aztec or Mayan. We are living in Tucson, close to the Mexican border but I suspect this is not Mexican in origin. Any information you can offer will be much appreciated. I’m the monkey with the hair and easily identifiable LOL...

From what I see, it’s not from pre-columbian Mexico.
