From Pale to Deep Shades, I have attempted to give some idea of a color survey of the humble Red - brown shade taken from my own collection. As new additions are added so, the diversity extends.

N18.13 Deep Chestnut 1923.

Variety N18p Frame Break base between E and H Row 20.2

The same variety but with Control W23.
