Is this a 755 shape cup?

This is quite a large cup, like a railways cup, although I thought they were the smaller version

It is simply stamped New Zeland on the base

It is the same height as a coffee mug, and the coffee can is slightly shorter

The records say - 755 Carlton Cup no measurements .
We do have a 755 in the Gallery and it matches the Museum pic ....

Ok, the handle is different on the museum pic. Sadly there is no number on my old one.

Yours looks like the 700 Railway Cup, unfortunately there are no measurements in the records. Val Monk has one and it is quite big for a cup that holds tea .... ~.~
You will find a pic in one of her books.

The bisque railways cup I have is 84mm across the top and 74mm high. The width including handle is 113mm. It doesn't have any impressed marks or words.
