What colour is my bowl then?  :shock:

 :lol:

It's not the best shape to get a photograph of the colour, but it's a very subdued dusky green.

Hi Nic, Ocean Green replaced Sea Green in 1958.......... I think your bowl is pre '58 so is Sea Green.  Hope this is of help. Regards patrick.

That's odd - the bowl (patt 9564) doesn't pop up until the 1960 catalogue. I only have the WFOrg.org online catalogues to work from, and I can't make out which colourways it was produced in that year.

I'd definitely agree that it was Sea Green, though, after comparing it with the colour of this decanter: http://www.whitefriars.com/contents.php?ID=240 (the colour on my bowl came out quite dark on the photo because of the shape, but the thicker parts are identical in tone to this)

Hi Nic, I think the highest pattern no. in the 1957 cat is 9497.
The 9564 was probably designed and made in late 1957 or early 58 and therefore in the then Sea Green.
 When I get back from London I will let you know the exact week in 1958 they changed over to Ocean Green....... The workbooks of Harry Dyer and Frank Hill show Ocean Green's introduction.
 Regards Patrick

I think Pewter is generally considered rare(r), as it was only used for a short while, but generally the rarity of a colour changes according to the pattern of the piece in question. One vase pattern may have had a 10-15 year production span in, say, Ruby, but another pattern may have only been available in Ruby for a couple of years.
