The large ones are not that common, but there are 7-in. and 8-in. tall varieties, the latter being the scarcest. The problem for any collector is where to put 'em! However, the actual texture you saw may have been Flemish See my website for more details.

I suspect they were 7-in. ones. It is difficult to judge the difference on first sight, but the 8-in. models are not often seen and having three together would be highly uncommon.
