Colours in photos are very difficult to determine sometimes, your middle Hambone looks Pewter on my screen!  LOL!  But you have it and if it has a blue tinge then it is Indigo.  The duck, could be Arctic Blue or it could be Silver, again two colours in the ducks which often cause confusion, even to people familiar with them.

Have a look on this colour thread from, it may help, although it does meander off as threads often do

Thanks Emmi

I have had a look at the WF thread, but have to confess I am now more confused about colours than I was to start with!  LOL

- but I have decided to keep the vase  ;D. I asked the seller for a part refund 2 days ago but have not had any response. will wait a bit longer, then send a reminder. If I get no response I will just leave appropriate feedback.

Thanks again for all the help. I have been waiting for a green WF dilly duck to arrive which I bought in early October, and was going to ask advice as to its colour;  sea or ocean - but it has disappeared into the ether with the postal pixies and never arrived here, so I can spare you that question. Now I'm just trying to get my money refunded.

Ain't Ebay fun!
