Just saw this posted at Facebook. It says it’s from 1574, but I doubt it. But some of the colours names are really funny. Trying to read the font is a bit difficult so I’m leaving this as a large format picture. For instance ‘Gooseturd Green’, very descriptive! I will leave you to ponder the rest!

  1. HAAA! They’re wonderful! “Gooseturd greene” seems to be old: That links to a book re Elizabethan England by William Harrison. I did a search for “gooseturd green etymology.” Now you’ve got me curious…will look for more. 🤗👋
