He stated the below:
Inside the wagon, there are 4 mirrored doors that that slide back and forth to hide the bed area, and a larger mirror with a smaller one on each side over top of the fireplace mantle (actually a stove, not a fireplace. My mirrors are missing, but I have gotten these pictures form some wagons from the same maker and time period. As I had mentioned, were talking around 1910. If you look closer at the larger views, you will see that they are shaded and have a secondary color scheme. The close up will show what appears to a darker painted on design. This is on the back side of the mirrors, and weather it is “cut” into the back of the actual mirror, or if it’s a clear panel with a mirror behind, I’m not sure. If I had to guess, I would say it was just the mirrored panel. They almost look as though they are just painted, but they are quite identical when you see them side by side, and then you would have to silver over the paint if that was possible. ~Randy S.
He didn’t think they were engraved as I suggested. He stated that the detail was too fine for engraving and had to have been some kind of detailed masked pattern.
