That's a very Davidson colour for tankards . I'd say the known colours will now be flint and amber. You might like to contact Chris Stewart so that he can comment (and amend the site).

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I think there are green tankards in a similar style, but I'm unsure about the pattern. However, I really cannot say if these are Davidson and may be a much earlier commemorative tankard (George V Silver Jubilee, 1936 Coronation?) so perhaps the 1930s.
