Could be, but these shallow dishes were also made separately (see same p.38). The larger powder bowl is 6½-in. diameter, as opposed to the smaller one at 5½in diameter. I have currently found Swirl, Anemone and Mermaid Rose in the larger size, but I think Calypto is around.

I think the disparity with measurements is due to me being informed incorrectly!

I'd certainly do that as they are quite scarce. Heavy beasts...
