and because I like to take guesses just in case they turn out to be right, I think the lizards on this one have the same enamelled white and red eye and the same enamelled mouth as my bowl. I also think this bowl has flat gilding on the bowl in the same way the butterflies on mine are flat gilded.
So I think it's a distinct possibility they are from the same maker. ( Possibly Thomas Webb  )   :)

This is a Thomas Webb piece in the V&A collection - also enamelled mouth (different enamel this time) and also what appears to be flat gilding on it:

and the jug that goes with the goblet - similar eyes again and possibly similar enamel red mouth to mine.  And flat gilded:
