Fire and Ice also has this as pompadour, p. 28.
Della mentioned three other varieties in Designlasin. Here's another: the turned top rim is cut off at at the top of the last rounded element, so it looks a bit different. Maybe that's where the confusion lies?

Thanks everyone. Its been interesting. Just another small wrench in the works ...Mine measures exactly 22cm and the base is 6.2cm not 6.5. Also that one seems to have a bit of a curve going up to the top / rim  wall. Mine is very square there.
I kind of remember reading , a long time ago, about Riihimaki taking over some of Nuutajarvi production when they both got taken over and ended up under the same ownership. But I might have this wrong ...and I can't find any reference to it now. ED.
