All Colors Insulator Gallery

Came across this rather well done chart of insulator colors. Make sure you follow the link to All Colors Insulator Gallery and click on each insulator.

Notice how the color ‘PUCE’ is not used on this Insulator chart. Puce is a color that is defined as ranging from reddish to purplish-brown, with the latter being the more widely accepted definition found in reputable sources. Puce is a shade of red. Us Bottle collectors seem to tag any bottle with a mystical color with the addition of puce somewhere in the color description (peach puce, copper puce, strawberry puce, apricot puce etc) 🙂
