I was a little shy about using the word standard, since most of the pws I've had in this size class have been 3-3.25" (7.6-8.3 cm) in diameter. This one I just considered on the large end of the normal range. I personally reserve the use of the word "magnum" for Murano pws to ones bigger than 4" in width. I've never known what to call the 4" tall egg-shaped ones because they don't appear to be so big.

Caithness had egg shaped ones at 100mm (4 inch) which they called ... "Egg".  ::)

They also had a faceted egg-ish shaped variety at 100mm called ... "Tall".
