A colour name originally used for Smalt but later used in the textile and allied trades for the colour, standardised by B.C.S in 1934. This colour name has been used from the 16th Century in connection with Smalt (Cobalt) and Prussian Blue. The more modern colour under this name, which was first used in the latter part of the 19th century, was probably derived from one of these earlier colours, but has deviated so much from Smalt that it is the general representation of samples submitted by textile and other colour using industries that is depicted here as Royal Blue.
Paints are handmade in our factory and very slight colour variations may occur. The printed colour label on the tin is an approximation of the paint shade and a guide only.
Dark blue trim can look great on woodwork, mirrors paired with a neutral and even another shade of blue for contrast.
