Yes, the vases come in two sizes plus there are matching candlesticks. One of the first bits of glass I ever bought at a bootsale, I was convinced it was Whitefriars and Geoffrey Baxter....

Link shows vase and candlestick (I assume that is what they are): http://starkeld.com/prod_img/normal/5067%20Kera%201.jpg

When I first started collecting I used to think these and similar vases were Dartington!

Don't think I have ever seen the tallest, anyone got a photo of two or even all three of them?

John, your suspicion is well reasoned. I have also rarely seen the largest and would also love to see a picture with all sizes altogether.
Here's the only one I found now
http://www.huuto.net/kohteet/vihrea-kehra-maljakko-tamara-aladin-riihimaen-lasi/202251964

-  do you see any difference in the proportions? In my eyes the bottom part may be a little longer than in the 25cm tall.

Just to add - posted pic is 25cm tall. So I guess that is the medium height.

Thanks Adam, so yes medium.

Suspicion no, curiosity yes PX. ;D

Laatutavara have a couple at 20 and 25cm tall and the 'candlesticks' I now see are vases are 10cm tall: http://www.laatutavara.com/eng/index.php?page=search&hakuteksti=Kehr%E4&Submit=Find

I think you are right about proportions in the 30cm example you linked to and I am also inclined to trust the various measurements given. :sun:

It is of course possible I have seen the larger version before but never realised, given I thought there were only two sizes.

I have this rather poor picture of  3 sizes, but I have an even larger one in clear glass too.

( I'm away at the moment, so can't measure or re-photograph mine)
