Pressed glass butterfly / paisley dish

I found this last week and thought the pattern & style look similar to a blue Greener dish I have which has the same sort of loops at the corners.  It's 7½" from top to bottom and 8¼" across its widest part.  I cannot find any maker's mark or RD no on it anywhere. Does anyone recognise this butterfly please?

Seems to happen more and more these days, Anne!  GMB being a victim of its own success?  >:D

My humble thoughts are that it's more like two paisley motifs joined together than a butterfly. Would that help in a keyword search? It's very attractive, but my experience is not wide enough to say whether it's unusual.

Thanks all. I've added paisley to the title to see if it pricks anyone's memory. :)  I'll try searching on paisley and see what happens. The annoyance is that I am sure I've seen this pattern somewhere before and I cannot remember where!  ::) 

Yes, Leni, it just shows how busy the board is!  8)
