Welcome to the board, what you have there is a bit of Czechoslovakian pressed glass that was designed by Vladislav Urban in around 1967. This type of glass is often described as Sklo Union.

At the bottom of this page are a few more of the shapes this design was produced in: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/CzechGlass

Ashtrays I think as they have bobbles for cigarette rests, no reason they could not be bowls though. They came in two sizes, small like this one,  14 by 9 cm, the larger size is 20 by 13 cm (shown in the 1987 Rosice catalogue, Art Before Industry database CD).
