The smaller one is definitely not 'Amas'.  It looks like one of the I. x germanica types (with +/- 44 chromosomes.  'Amas' is a clone of a wild collected tetraploid species that has 48).  I need to look through my photos and see if I have a match as for which specific cultivar it is; however, it does remind me a lot of 'Susa', and that might be worth checking out.

János  --  I think the one you’ve identified as Amas matches the picture of Amas in the Historic Iris Preservation Society (HIPS) file http://www.hips-roots.com/visitors/v-photos/vp-topframe.html.  What is the other one you have pictured?  --  Griff

Dear All,

I have taken this picture today. It is about one foot or a bit taller, but definietly smaller than TB 'Amas'
It is dark purple and has flowers the size of × flavescens.

And I think this is Amas:

Thank you for your help!
