Inca burial head pottery

I have this that i inherited,  it is in amazing condition,  I am interested in knowing its value, and possibly selling it. This is what is written on the bottom. 

INCA HUACO

To Mr.  and Mrs. Geo N. Lawnver

 

This specimen I procured from a native of Peru in Sienfic Province of Pacos Wayo in 1912. I can vouch for its genuiness as the Indian from whom I received it was when I met him in the act of excavating an old Inca burial ground from which this was taken. This is estimated to be at least 1000 years old and is concede by authorities on south American antiques to be one of the very best specimens extant of ancient peruvian pottery ware or inca huaco as they are better known.
