Scandinavian (Iittala ?) or inspired by ... ?

... this type of glass always confuses me  :huh: ... is it made by one of the major Scandinavian designers / factories or just loosely inspired by them ?

I can not find this design in any of the books I have here, it does look to me to be 'in the style of' one or other of the Scandinavian glassmakers but I have no idea when or where it was made.

Thanks ! ... this takes me a little closer.

... I can't find a bowl in this pattern with the "ruffled" edge however and on the bowls that I do see the base also has a "solar" pattern while the base on mine is evenly structured.

... search goes on !
