One of my favorites, this collie is the color known as Jasmine. It’s a light brown with overtones of rose and amethyst and looks a little different in different types of lighting. It is really a lovely color – the photo doesn’t do it justice! The Mosser “M” stamp on the base, in addition to the one on the left side, places the year of manufacture before 1981.
This color isn’t always identified correctly in “for sale” listings – I’ve seen it incorrectly called “grape”, “amethyst” and “amber”. Look for the pink/brown cast in the photos for a “best guess” ID.
