I have a Monart bowl in the same type of decoration but with yellow and orange splashes and no gold aventurine.

Having seen, handled and photographed three of the pieces in question ( the 2 museum pieces and my own piece) I am still of the opinion, all four pieces (Roberta's piece now included) are the same type of decoration.
All four pieces have as a basis, the citron colour with bubbles as shown in photo 1 my bowl and photo 2 museum goblet.
The only difference between my bowl and the other three is the size and colours of the splashes, where my one has orange and yellow were as the other three the splashes of colour are blue and green.

Has yours got the bronzy colour in it that looks a bit like but isn't aventurine?

Exactly what I was going to ask! I can't see any bronze glittery stuff in the bowl.

I suspect it's the yellowy glass that contains the uranium.
But I would not consider the bowl to be the same colourway at all.
It has bubbles and yellow uranium glass, but that's where the similarities end.

If it doesn't glow a very bright  in daylight or any other kind of light with a UV torch, then it doesn't contain uranium. You don't need to test in in the dark; that can give a false answer if it contains manganese (that is a dull fuzzy yellowish green glow that looks brighter in the dark).

It has.

What I said, it was the same type of decoration ie uranium, citron colour and bubbles with splashes of colour and not  the same colourway.

Oops, I think we read that a bit wrong - not same colourway same TYPE of decoration!
Yours looks like it has big angular patches of colour - white? But definitely lots of bubbles  :D

They used, rarely, other colours of aventurine. Red, Blue, Green and a Bronzy colour that is hard too see.

Plate 34 in Ysart Glass used red.
