I don't think they are from Westwood. I used to have the set until I gave it to Goodwill. From what I remember mine were unmarked.

Konakaibaby, those mugs are on ooga mooga but there isn't much info about them. (Click the link and scroll about half way down)

http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/search.cgi?terms=;des_id=any;man_id=any;img_id=2;shp_id=9;clr_id=5;mode=search_process;x=81;y=6&show=50&details=yes

I know they have been discussed on here before, but using the search to find it would be a long process unless you can think of some really good keywords.

Oh, excellent! That's him
I had searched on Ooga mooga, but with no manufacturer, it felt like a needle in a haystack. So, thanks so much for the link!
There was obviously a very small, rectangular sticker on the bottom. But there's nothing legible left anymore.
Thanks!

A gold triangle sticker on the bottom with the letters OMC, Japan
was from the Otagiri Mercantile Company.

Is the sticker gold?

No, it's white and rectangular. But not the size of a price tag--quite little, like a manufacturer's tag. But nothing left but white. I have a couple of Otagiri things and Westwood/Artmark, and the sticker isn't shaped like those.

Ah, thanks for the image. It could indeed have originally looked like that. Much has rubbed off and a portion is missing.

KonaKaiBaby, I'm not positive but I think the manufacturer is Wespac. If I recall there are 2 sizes, I think both have handles, and the 4 large ones were sold as a set.
Yes, I have 2 just like yours, and one of my 2 is on OM for sale or trade,

Slowhandtikiman nailed it. Good job. Its westpac. One of the 4 in the set sold on etsy and in the pics it showed the Westpac sticker on the bottom.

Scroll down on the link to see it.

Wonderful! Many thanks slowhandtikiman! I'm super happy to know the origin and manufacturer. Now I can start tracking down his "brothers" and reunite them as a set!
Many thanks, everyone!

KonaKaiBaby, the mug(s) were made by WestPac. There are small 4 1/2" ones and larger 5 1/2" ones. A total of 8 if you count both sizes, It seems like the smaller ones are a little more common. I like design of the one you have the best. I really love these mugs and have been fortunate enough to find all 8. They are listed on page 47 in Tiki Quest. If you google them there is a site that claims that they were sold in Adventure at Disneyland in the day. I don't know if this is true but it's a nice thought.

Here is the WestPac sticker label. They are rarely on the mugs, Only 2 of my 8 have this label still attached to the bottom.

I have no idea what it is, but I love it! Especially the first pic. What a great face! I'll be very interested to hear the origin of such a fun piece. Thanks so much for sharing
