tawny

  1. barna[1]
    • 1719, Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe:
      The colour of his skin was not quite black, but very tawny, and yet not of an ugly yellow nauseous tawny, as the Brasilians and Virginians, and other natives of America are, but of a bright kind of a dun olive colour, that had in it something very agreeable, though not very easy to describe.
