Looks kinda like the Hawaiian Cottage Parrot mug by OMC... minus the fancy paint and name.. glaze reminds me of something DAGA would do though...

Yeah it reminds me of the regular Omc parrots that we all know and love but with the brown over yellow glaze. There is a address of some kind on the bottom, but it's not clear enough to read any of it. Same size as the OMC peanut mug exactly. hmmmmm. looking at the pic of the OMC, The lines on the mug look to match to. Question is it a copy of the OMC or a orig.??
good Potted Parrot drink mug

The glaze looks just like a Fire Hut Mfg. mug I have, made for the Kon-Tiki in Tucson.

Any idea who made this solid yellow parrot mug? It appears to be the same mold from the Hawaiian Cottage parrot and I know OMC made them.I know it is not the newer Dynasty Wholesale do to the crazing on the bottom and the quality of the glaze.
So do you guys think it is the same as above? It was also advertised as a vase but I'm sure it's a mug.

Here's a closer look at the vintage OMC Hawaiian Cottage mug for comparison. The vintage mug has a concave bottom that is a full one inch deep. Underglaze marked and stands 7 1/2" tall. The vintage mug is very thin walled and is easily broken. Here are some pics.
