I haven't seen an ivory, but the nickel 500 and the painted 500A both had traces of silver paint on the entire burner, grate and base plate. I used VHT flat silver and am very happy with the outcome.

I do like the contrast of the black base plate and silver burner, 'though.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Black, as evidenced by this unfired example in the link. My ivory 500 has black uppers but it is a restoration by the PO.

Thanks for posting that Mike.  $337 in 2010 would likely be well over a grand for that stove today.  But then again, an unfired ivory 500, Wow.

I hate to admit this, but I had my grate redone in black porcelain:



It is kinda purdy!
