2 unknown Pitis

These both pieces seem to be Pitis of Brunei. But ...  ??? ??? ???

1. 19.3 - 19.4 mm The umbrella let me think about Brunei. Nothing similar for Brunei in SS.

2. 17.0 - 17.5 mm Similar pieces are SS # 32 - 43, but all those petals are rounded.

I think the lower design is known as mata hari (sun), a popular design in Burma.
