Yes, she is Sowerby, and what a beauty! (I want to bid now, oh heck!)

You can see her on my website  :)

I'm sure it's always a question of the angle (of photographing), but in this case I would like to draw your attention to the differences between Glen's figurine and eBay offer:
the upper rim of flower bouquet - please count the edge's leaves;
her dress seems to be different - Glen's is very Empire;
and, last but not least, I cannont make out, whether the eBay lady's flower block is rimmed/ruffled also?
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I believe these items are identical - no difference that I can see.

It is a challenging piece to photograph, and as you say Pamela, the angle at which the photo is taken can give emphasis to certain things.

I don't see any difference in the base. The dress details look identical to me. Any slight difference in the leaves is either caused by the different angles / lighting of the two shots, or possibly there might even be slight damage to the top edge of the one on my website.
