Consider scanning the good glass at a 3D printing/service shop. Print out a cheap plastic copy and simply use for display. I'd imagine if the bulbs on these are MV, the printed material couldn't handle the heat. Actually, polycarbonate copies can be made, which are good for LPS lamps. Keep a copy of the 3D scanned format on a file for future use, for if and when you decide to visit a glass blowing facility.

Thanks, I thought about seeing if I could get one made, do you honestly think a repro could be blown or moulded?

Sorry for the late reply. I'm no expert but I think that a glass-blowing shop that does custom orders can reproduce the glass. It might be costly, possibly more compared to a 3D scan and a printed plastic copy which is now (in 2020) easier to procure. Your good Bowl is the holy-grail, and you're only limited by your imagination and your pocket book. Keep us informed.
