It was interesting to see so many in original condition, because all the cast iron parts are jet black, with a low-gloss finish, but the sheet metal of the barrels have a blue cast to them that I would not have noticed if the cast iron parts were not so jet black in contrast.
I've seen many pictures of restored stoves. Most seem to be either flat black, or flat charcoal gray. So many that I've wondered what they originally looked like. Well, I got to spend about 6 hours touring all through Wilson's place on Saturday and I got to see a bunch of originals, and not just Glenwoods.
More about that wonderful visit in another thread.
