Sorry, my ´a message has been posted´ thingie function doesn´t seem to work... I´m a bit out of time at
the moment unfortunately, but I´ll try the other route I mentioned asap (which may not be too soon perhaps)...
Bear with me... work, a short trip next weekend, then more intense work, then some time to breath hopefully.

I've just been forwarded some important information (or rather, an important photograph) regarding the vase and the 'pumpkin' bowl.  I am now confident that both are Polish, designed by Aleksander Puchała.  In the photograph (taken in the 1970s or early 1980s) you can see Aleksander Puchała and his wife at an exhibition of his designs.  At the very bottom center of the picture is the same vase and the pumpkin shown in this thread.

Unfortunately, I haven't got permission to share that photo here.

Seconded. Many thanks, Anik!
I also googled that guy and I think he really made some nice designs in glass, so I feel
it´s good to have some of his work in my collection.
Please also thank the other collector for sharing this information.  :)

As a result an older rule of thumb is back now. Gralglas clear glass always glows orange
under UV. (These were the exceptions until now ;) )
