Displayed on an antique wooden bench, these ten jars contain different paints and are each sandblasted with its corresponding official color name. The colors were chosen from a paint chart that consists of thirty-one colors, all certified to have been used on the interiors and exteriors of public and private buildings in colonial Philadelphia.
