        Hi Maurice, there is a bit of a disagreement
        concerning these samples. The pieces themselves are
        unmarked, as far as manufacturers marks are concerned,
        the sizes depend on what they are alleged to
        represent, mostly they are plates representing the
        piece and size is also representative of the actual
        article.

        The debate centres around when they where made, it is
        unlikely that salesmen would carry them around as they
        would actually weigh more than the glass itself, while
        they would be more robust, carrying that weight around
        would not be good for your back.

        It is also thought that they may actually have been
        manufactured some time after the glass possibly in the
        Far East. You may have noticed that recently a large
        number of "vintage" pieces have been coming onto the
        market, these have been shown to new reproductions
        from the Far East, especially Korea. They are easily
        spotted, usually have too much irridescence, too
        thick, badly marked etc.

        Hope this is of some help

        Regards
