I agree. It looks Mayan influenced. A cacao drinking cup. But it's very crude by Mayan standards. I would consult an expert in the field to find out more info.I believe this is Myan influenced, but dating it is going to be tricky given anyone could have used such a design from a Myan period to date. You would almost have to be able to carbon date the actual pottery. I don't think that can be done at all. On Mesoamerican Mexican site origins of pots and other ceramics show most having red ocre color mixed fully coloring the pottery very red.
I know little about this type of pottery, but it does seem logical that
if the etching were done at the time it was made it should show the
same patina/aging as the rest of the exterior.
