I adore this! It's like a mile away from the colour we now associate with magenta. Even though it's pretty obvious that the dye has faded and changed over the years, I'm suspicious if they could even produce the neon quality colour with the materials and equipment of the day.

I have been thinking about things like this ever since I heard that the colour Puce was acclaimedly introduced into fashion by the French queen Marie-Antoinette. In modern day, can we really even see the real hue that M-A might have invented? Of course vegetable based dyes fade in the course of decades. So maybe Marie-Antoinette was really wearing magenta of which the brownish pink we see today is just a shadow.
