Put it like this, it is one of the less common designs because it wasn't easy to make and the workforce wasn't the most skilled at the time (at least I think that's what the book says, as mine's on holiday in Scotland)

Something like that and that contrasting bands are rare... but we don't know how long a 'short' time was and how many they made in that time. Come back in 10 to 20 years and rarity should be clearer.
