    Does anyone know what this leg color ("swarthy horn") is supposed to look like? Does anyone have a picture?

    Thanks,

    Anne

    Sounds like a Pre 1950 Jcrew color name which was tossed over in favor of "Ecru" in the late 70s and is nnow known as "dark mushroom".



    Ok that was all a load of rubbish...sorry I dont know [​IMG]
