It's not Sowerby. To me it looks like some of the very modern pressed pieces found in giftware or homeware shops. Italian perhaps?

I must admit I was wondering too if it was modern.

I did think the artwork on top look old though, also it was in the same auction lot that the Walsh Walsh, mother of pearl vase was in! so it had good company.

I have actually just found a mark on the base: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4067/4614677675_f919ec6d46_o.jpg

That looks like 21/-,  21 shillings, which seems rather a lot.

Random unrelated thought: Perhaps American might be a good bet.

It was made by U.S. Glass / Tiffin. The pattern is called "Flower Garden and Butterfly"....
