I've checked twice and it seems to be 13.5cm (5 1/2") tall for the amethyst piece on the listing shown by Keith's link?

Bearing in mind tolernaces, wold this make any difference?

According to  Teema ja Muunnelmia the size is 12 cm for the larger one and 9 cm. for the smaller version. 

The 1958 art glass catalogue from Nuutajärvi has the KF 241 and the KF241-1 - but does not mention sizes (size and price may have dropped off the page).   The colours were yellow, lilac, violet blue and moss-green.
