Large Figural Sowerby English Centerpiece?

Hi g-m-a
Another thread to ponder on your wonderful flower set, I had a set very similar in satin pink, the figerine the same but the bowl did not have any decoratoin around the edge.  The dome in the centre had a light fitted under the base also the top had a round frog grid over all the surface.
       The bowl had Reg: No. 749772   Date: 4-11-1929.

I hope this is helpful or not, lets hope we get there in the end.
I have worked in horticulture all my working life,
retiering in my 50,s but then had a partenship in a antique centre for 10 years then retiered again. I am now still a collector and a part time dealer in glass as Swanspool Antiques

Roger I was fortunate enough to have Sue (Blackpoppy) email me with documentation of this being Mueller & they made several versions & even one using a different figurine (they used more than one) so they odds would seem to favor yours being Mueller.  Ken
