I've now come across two separate Walther 'Atlantik' trinket sets, both in amber glass, with short, stubby candlesticks (and without a flat drip plate below the cup).

The other sets I've seen have all had the 'normal' taller 170mm pattern 36021 candlesticks with a flat drip plate below the cup as shown in the 1937 Walther musterbuch (see photo of uranium green set for comparison).

Has anyone seen the shorter candlestick variants in a colour other than amber?

Do the short variants have a different catalogue number?
