Understanding Quilt-Specific Colors: Chocolate Brown

Chocolate Brown or Hershey Brown
Chocolate browns are very indicative of the 1870s and ‘80s.  In fact, that segment of the Victorian period is often referred to as “the brown years” because of the prominence of browns in paints and fabrics.  Rich chocolate brown (think the color of a milk chocolate bar, hence the alternate name ‘Hershey’ brown) was often paired with white in quilts.
