FWIW, my own conclusion is that the rapid yellowing of this top

and Ian Huntley mentions  the so-called "green shift" in his writings. It's 
optical and has to do with the way light reacts to early gloss varnishes, and

when new, fresh and glossy. However, as the gloss goes off with time, a more 
and more brownish color appears.
