From frankly unpalatable beginnings Mummy became a recognised term (even mentioned by Shakespeare) for an old brown. As you might guess, it described the appearance of mummified remains and indeed was made from them until the late C19th when it became deeply unfashionable. Now that it would be unthinkable to create a colour in this way I feel at liberty to use it for a colour that is rightly fashionable again!
“We have used your paints to redecorate two good Regency houses, one of them Trematon Castle, both of architectural interest, and found the range and subtlety of your colours not only historically appropriate but providing an uplifting background for furniture and pictures. They enhance the proportions of every room and give each a very special atmosphere in sunlight and in shade. They give us pleasure every day and are much admired by all our visitors.”
