I've got two liliputana plants and am short of space - so you're welcome to have one of them. I can send measurements/photos if you're interested.
Thank you for the kind offer! G. liliputana might be the only Gasteria I currently have, a little (<30 mm wide) offshoot came with a bunch of cuttings I swapped over Facebook some time ago. I will allow myself to message you with a photo asking for a confirmation or correction, and potentially discuss the details of your offer.

I can probably find a little offset if you like that armstrongii Mat. [...]
How can I decline an offer of a plant that pushed me to actually write this thread?!
Please make sure you're happy with removing the offshoot because the plant looks absolutely stunning clumped like that! I'd be more than happy even with a tiny bit that fits in a large letter box!
I will check your other suggestion as well, the leaves are a tad too pointy and might be too large to "fit the bill", but the colour and texture of them are stunning!
says 20-50 mm, so definitely fits the bill!

A good starting list, Mat. One of my favourite miniatures is the true bayeri
(= small), 3 inch pot, ten years old: [...]
That's a perfect recommendation, I assume this is a synonym of the G. brachyphylla var. bayeri on my list? I couldn't find this species separately.
On a side note, do Gasterias have similarly long taproots as Haworthias, or they'll be okay in regular clay pots?
