    I can't say that I've ever heard of the colour "Georgian Green" but I would imagine that it is a specific shade of green which was used a lot during the Georgian period in the UK. This covers the reigns of Kings George I, II, III and IV between 1714 and 1830.

    If that's not the explanation, then perhaps there is an artist or designer on here who recognises the term.

    I've read the passage and I believe my explanation is right, given the context!

    There seem to be different shades of green with the name.
