Was surfin' the web lookin' fer examples 'o shiny to be incorporated into the pirate ship project, came across this unique site- www.gypsywaggons.co.uk/varsuk.htm . Near as I can figger, Vardo is Gypsyish for ornate wagon. Every surface 'o these buggys in and out is carved, painted, upholstered or otherwise decorated with old world craftsmanship. Saw a grand example of one outside of RAF Mildenhall in the 70's. Pics really don't do justice to the incredible detailing.
