SG is probably typo.

Bird bath is not 'typical' of SU which is also found without and such bases are used elsewhere too.

Took me five weeks to decide to remove label from the front of my toilet bowl. Decided in the end it would probably not become collectible.
I'd just like to thank you all so much  for expanding this thread into a very informative piece of writing and I've really enjoyed reading it ! I will never look at the vase in the same light again !  ;)

I still feel the actual colour over the opal is closer to amber, but looking again at the second image I can see why "yellow" has been suggested.

In fact, I recall seeing the same "yellowish" colour (or tint) on another "air trap / MOP" vase in a fair some years back, but again the yellow effect was not so clear on the upper parts of the neck and the underside of the rim.
The Phoenician one was months ago , so it is probably not currently listed. They also do or did a version of the Maltese boat ashtray but the ends of the boat are longer and more perpendicular and again different colours.  :) Thanks again for posting the photos Rosie ! Cheers, Mike

P.s. I will continue to hunt for rabbits  ;)
