Just wait until you're 63.  8)
It is a mistake many others have made. It's warned about on sites which warn about such things.
The leaping salmon has a sort of double bar across it. It's only easy once you know what both marks are supposed to look like.
This link contains really good images of the leaping salmon mark.

Despite the tiny bits of amber which look like silver metal influence, I think it would be reasonably safe to describe this weight as Pink and Blue Swirls.
It is from the earlier times and although many different swirly weights were made, none with official names, this is in keeping with the period in which the Pink and Blue Swirls attenuated bottles were made.  :)

 :) I have been paying attention to anything Tudor since I became interested in glass, although cut stuff isn't my thing. I'd adored Grandpa's glasses since I was a toddler and wanted to find out more about them. I really haven't found much.

Maybe he didn't sign it? How does the quality of work compare with your jug?
Both bowls have daisies. And very elegant curly bits.  ;D
I think the other flowers on the jug might be more buttercup-y, those are on both bowls too.
I don't have the bowl any more and my pics are not the best. :-[

Looking at the base of your bowlthat is all elllegant curly bits. That is rather unusual. I might allow myself to think/suspect that might help indicate original work.  ;D
