I presume that you mean one of these?
They actually came in four sizes, the 2 given with the photo and also 230mm & 320mm.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

You are more than welcome, Kev  ;D but be aware, there are copies from Italy out there. I have only handled one, which was the large size and, luckily for me, not in a colour that I was familiar with and it was also marked Italy underneath.

Their proper name is Aurinkopullo. I think they were made 1964-74. Here is Helena working on them http://lisa.hyrinet.fi/aurinkopullo/tynell.htm. There is even a sun bottle club in Finland, unfortunately the website http://lisa.hyrinet.fi/aurinkopullo/etusivunkopio.htm is in Finish but there are some nice pictures and it you root around it shows some of the lookalikes
