oddly, of all the separate cut features on this one, it's those small vertically cut ovals - each with three criss-cross mitres - that seem not to appear on other Anglo-Irish bowls that I can find.   All the other cutting  -  the fan-scalloped rim, strawberry diamonds, the diagonal mitres, plus the cushion/ball knop and the foot with radial cutting  -  can be seen on cut material from late C18 to c. 1830  -  though must admit I'd like to have seen some decent relief diamonds.                 There are engraved and cut motifs such as the vesica and the leaf frond which are known to have a particular Irish provenance, though I bet they've been copied at times - but they're not on this one.                     
This bowl might be Anglo-Irish, it might not, regret I don't collect the stuff, just look at pix in the books ;)              If you don't already have Phelps Warren's book 'Irish Glass' (it must be the 1981 second edition - revised and expanded - not the first edition from 1972)  -  then you should get a copy  -  it will help  ...........   I rather like part of the opening sentence from the Foreword that sums up how quick we are in deciding on a preferred attribution        "............  and more 'Waterford glass' has been sold than was ever produced, during the active lifetime of the Waterford factory, by all the glasshouses of the island combined."  ;D

Whatever, it's an attractive bowl, and am sure I would have been tempted.            Sorry this doesn't really get you any further forward  -  hopefully others might have something more positive to add.
