Loaf pan sizes

Hello from  a new member!

Can't wait to start baking these recipes but I notice that in many of them

no exact pan size is given, only "large" or "small".  Exactly how big is the large loaf pan

and how big is the small one as suggested in the recipes?

The loaf pans that I regularily use for bread are this size:

Inside measurements at the top: LxW = 9.25"x5.13" = 23.5 cm x 13.0 cm

Inside measurements at the bottom: LxW = 8.5"x4.5" = 21.6 cm x 11.4 cm

Depth of pan: 2.5" = 6.4 cm.

I usually put 34 oz of dough in each pan  After rising and baking the loaf weighs about 31-32 oz. and measures LxWxH = 9.5"x5"x5".

I hope this helps.

I have a lot of old pans here that are HUGE 17' x 5" x 4" that always were used for married loaves, and am wondering if there is a calculation to work out what size the two dough pieces should be?
