Early Greener pattern - new to me

Nice charity shop find, rather battered and probably missing a lid, but with a clear early Greener TM (lion holding star), in an attractive pattern I've not seen before.   Jenny Thompson dates the TM to 1875–c.1885.

It took four attempts with a heavy duty cleaner to shift 130 years of grime cemented on with limescale!

Has anyone seen other examples?

Browsing through Thompson I noticed the Angus & Greener sugar basin illustrated on p.57, Rd 26 June 1867.   While not the same design as my bowl above, the pattern was formed from similar beaded or hobnailed strapwork, showing design continuity from Angus & Greener to early Greener and from the old factory to the new.
