A colourful note: The term mahogany red made its first appearance in the English language in 1843.  The name is still much used, especially for hair dye.

The Crayola version of mahogany takes on the red tone in a bold manner.  It was a crayon that appeared in their range in 1949, but appears to have developed its red side 42 years later, in 1991.  Not uncommon for us women to start covering our hints of grey at that age!
