Glass / please help to identify,

Hi, I recently opened a box which has been in storage, and found this bowl, can anyone identify the maker?  I have attached pics, and think it may be Finnish or Dutch.
Glass / Re: Rostro style vase ID?
« Last post by Lustrousstone on Yesterday at 03:08:07 PM »
How do you know it's Italian? The green vase is unlabelled, so I suggest its ID and even date are more hopeful than accurate, particuarly as the seller has most of his vases labelled Murano...

So I know I need to be patient, but everyday I sit in my office looking at this peculiar vase wondering just what the heck it is.

The Barovier photos below are reminiscent, but then I located what I believe to be one by the same maker here:

So I still don't know the make / artist, but at least I know it's vintage Italian.

Does the second (green) vase help?

Glass / British glass technology transfer to South Africa

(I really don't know where to post this on Glass Messages... you don't have a section about South Africa! Please move it to a better section if necessary?)
Can anyone tell me when modern glassmaking started in South Africa? I cannot find anything about it anywhere. The chances are good, I think, that it may have been British technology that was taken there, as happened in other places in the world, eg Australia, Japan (my area of study Surely some modest scale manufacturing was set up there? No doubt mass importing from Britain took place, but surely somebody started up making it there in the 19th century? Even if only bottles/flat glass.
I will be visiting the Eastern Cape in a few weeks, and would like to find out in advance if there are any museum collections there, of 19th century glass (British or South African). I see there's one well north of Durban, that's too far. Thank you!
