Painted Shades

These shades are enameled with a variety of scenes ranging from lakes and castles to cottages and forests. Almost always in marigold. Some have been fuond with Czechoslovakian labels. Prices vary widely, so I suspect the price of any particular shade is determined more by interest of particular people at an auction than any intrinsic value. Nonetheless, here are a few for reference:

Cabin scene, 9 inch, 150 (1998)
Castle scene, large, 250 (2001)
Castle scene, 4 sold as set, 120 (2002)
Castle scene, 55 (2003), 135 (2013)
Castle scene on hanging fixture, 145 (2005)
