These are examples of the handpainted shades mentioned just recently on CW. Twice in the last 30 days. They are both opal and marigold iridescent 2 & 1/4 fitter shades. I have believed that these were Bohemian/ Czech shades. I did have one several years ago that had a small paper foil label saying that it was made in Czechoslovakia. Also the Carnival shades book written by McGuire? I hope I have that right, lists these shades as Czech. Now Alfredo says they are Ruckl so thank you. Another mystery solved. :O) I don't feel any differently, when I can attribute a maker to a particular shade, about the shade but it does feel good to learn something new every day. I hope the images are of interest to you.
I look forward to your remarks. I wish the images were better. I still find it very difficult to capture the wonderful colours especially the highlights on iridescent glass.
