Octagonal Green Glass Plate with Pattern in center

Hello

This is a octagonal plate measuring 7 5/16th across. It is green and has a pattern in the center. The pattern is raised and on the bottom of the plate. I found the pattern here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/100878582/vintage-uranium-glass-cake-plate-retro ,but this is not the dish. They titled it as Uranium Glass, but I don't know much about this type of glass.

A picture to help with id is attached.

Any help would be appreciated!

Doesn't look like uranium glass to me. Uranium glass has a real flouro green tinge to it and this shows up even more in black light.

You can tell if it is uranium glass (vaseline glass) by using a black light on it...if it is vaseline it will glow. It looks like it may be a piece of depression glass.
