Ha, great, not lost at all, thanks, Silverline! That earmark mention made me think of it. Good to be reminded --it's a real find!

I think the mug in that auction looks a lot like a home-made Duncan mold mug, much like mine.

Good catch, the nose flare and the ear notch are a clear match in my opinion.
Thanks for showing the mold, fantastic find!

I have three black Moai mugs with no labels or markings. I am trying to figure out which if any are OMC and/or OMC lookalikes. One has glaze drip marks. I have weighed all three and the weights are 18.3 oz, 16.3 oz, and 12.7 oz.
My theory is that the two heavier ones are OMC and the lighter one with the glaze drip marks is the lookalike.
Does anyone have an OMC with an OMC label who could weigh it? Anyone with a KNOWN lookalike who could weight that one? Anyone with both able to weigh both and compare?
Thanks to anyone who is able to participate in this "trivial" expedition.
