They are wound rotor split phase using slip rings and brushes like a alternator they have a centrifugal switch they came I horsepowers of 1,1/4,1/20 and 1/30. I restored the 1/6 hp one I liked the black and bare steel I have no clue if this is how they’re supposed look one of them is original . I also have a Robinson miyers 1/2hp 30 volt dc motor

If the middle section of bare steel is the actual core of the field, I would imagine it would've been 'bare' originally. The stampings are actually lacquered. But it's possible they would've been painted over with black paint after assembly. The end bells would've been black... maybe Japan black.
