So difficult to imagine what colour the image would have conjured up in the 18th C, but so far I don't feel the options are very "period", although I don't necessarily disagree with their interpretation of the colour. Thought this one might work a little better.
Also, found refs to the colour in an apparently historic context: http://www.piecingthepast.com/scripts/quiltshop.asp?category... brings up a surprisingly matte and dark green, in contrast to other more modern refs.
