Paint is probably not correct.i do believe it is glass colouring The iridescent finish was a thin layer  added at the end covering everything. The yellow was all surface colouring very thin as well. The white mostly surface some went below. It all flaked away with ease after 1 good hammer

I can't remember what explanation we've been given for that iridescent finish. 

I was looking up carnival glass. The iridescent process for that is...maybe its the same process

"Carnival glass gets its iridescent sheen from the application of metallic salts while the glass is still hot from the pressing. A final firing of the glass brings out the iridescent properties of the salts, giving carnival glass the distinct shine it is known for."... wixipedia
