I'm afraid I don't think so, I can see where you're coming from, though.

The Brancaster has a hollow stem which joins the bowl with a good deal less of the graduation, the bowl is also wider and shallower.

The Sandringham has a much wider base, and a taller, slimmer bowl.

Dartington might be another option, but I can't find any in any of my books - I don't have the Frank Thrower book yet.  :-[

The colour is too brown for Dartington, but will check when I get home

Not Dartington, at least not pre 1987
