Lattice towers similiar to Eiffel Tower

Many people compare say that each lattice tower is a bit of a copy of Eiffel Tower, but in my opinion, a lattice tower should be only said, that it is of similiar design, when it is

1. Not a scale replication of Eiffel Tower ( in these cases the builders wanted to build a model of it, which is not the case for lattice towers similiar to Eiffel Tower)

2. Have either
- a bow at the basement
- a basement with 4 feet, which are fitted together in 2 levels by a cross connection without larger diagonal connections ( I mean not of the type lower parts of electricity pylons and most lattice radio towers loo like)
- a top with a double-row lattice structure

When using these criteria, I found that the following lattice towers are similiar to Eiffel Tower ( Blackpool Tower [ http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0000892 ] and Berlin Radio Tower [ http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0000339 ] do although often compared with Eiffel Tower not fulfill these criteria and appear therefore not in the list)
