The bowl looks like it may be uranium glass. Have you tried looking at it under blacklight? If it is uranium glass, there is a possibility that it is a Salviati piece. It reminds me of a couple of whimsical spotted uranium glass pieces they made c.1960. Salviati is only a guess. Someone else may have a better idea.
