Vintage Color Names?

I am taking a quilt square of my Grandmother’s to a cousin as a gift.  I have been told that one of the green fabrics was called “poison bottle green” and would like to be able to tell her what some of the other colors were called.  There are yellows, blues, oranges/tangerines.  I could send a picture from my cell phone.  The fabrics are from the 20’s and 30’s.  Thank you!

    Hi Shirley,

    I don’t have the vintage names of the colors but perhaps one of our readers knows more?

    Chime in if you know some of the color names please.
