Bread pan question

I have an extra large Hovis bread pan that measures 9 1/2”x 5 1/2” x4 inches deep. Does anyone know what size loaf this would make. I am guessing it is more than a 2 pound loaf.

I had to measure my pan in inches... It is 10 1/2" x 4" x 4", which I would say is commercial loaf size (give or take a mm). I make an approx 1 kg loaf, which is approx 2 pounds (unless American pounds are different from UK pounds?). 

Go metric, it's easier!

I also made a brioche which weighs slightly less but it still fits the pan just fine and looks as it should when it is baked.
