Colourways

  • Renaissance: Black (1989 only); Blue (1989 only) - colours over a Sherbet body. Of the two colourways, blue is by far the most common. The black colourway is very hard to find. It is shown in Mark Hill’s book [1] on page 116.
  • Renaissance II: Blue (late 1989-1991); Pink (late 1989-1991); Brown (1990-1991) - colours over a gräal body. Renaissance II is much scarcer than the earlier Renaissance, even though it was produced for a longer period. Blue is the more common colourway, while pink and brown are extremely rare.
