DuPont 1920's/1930's Paint Sample Book for Refinishers Incredible

Recommended Posts

Here is a very fine DuPont DUCO catalog of paint color samples for refinishers. Undated, thought to be late 20's - early 30's. Individual colors represented by felt-backed samples approx. 8" x 3". There are 50 samples with names like: Alpine Green Dark; Peter Pan Blue; Merrimac Beige; Labrador Smoke; Courier Cream; Bandarillo Red; Swamp Holly Orange; Mountain Ash Scarlet. Everything is in great shape. Looking for best offer over $500.00

Just to clarify - This book contains Dupont "recommended" color combinations ( combos they felt looked good together) for various types of cars ( sedans, coupes, whatever) and NOT the specific color combinations available on specific MAKES of cars rom the factory. Is that correct? Either way, it is an interesting piece, but want to be clear on exactly what it is.
The build sheet for my '31 Cadillac, shipped in March 1931 specifies "Peter Pan Blue" Duco which does confirm/narrow the time period.

Correct. The book is intended for refinishers who might be changing colors or even duplicating colors on a customer car. It is not directed towards specific makes as later DuPont annual offerings were. Thanks for helping pinpoint the time period.
