    I've only seen reference to this obscure pattern in this form and never with the original stopper by all appearances seems to match but doesn't fit properly as it is too big and neither part is ground.
    Are there any other pieces to this pattern?

      Yes, there are other pieces, and it is also found with a blue top as well. There are sister patterns; one has a swirl pattern at the base, the other has hobnails... same color combinations. Apparently Aetna called all of it Adonis. The technique of fusing the colored glass tops to the opalescent glass bottoms was patented.
