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).

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 of worldly things 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.
