Both Don Johnson's and Ted Ficklen's responses to my question are
instructive but not the answer I was seeking. Nabokov is specific in
referring to the transference from cherry red to apple green as a
"mnemonic [rather than optical] trick". Chapter 2 of Transparent Things is
very brief and contains a clue to the solution.
