you can easily limit the era from 1918 to 1939.
sometimes it helps to go back to the German roots. Jílové was Eulau, Eule means owl and the city crest shows an ...
it was near the railway line "k.k.privilegierte Dux-Bodenbacher Eisenbahn". so you might look at some Royal Dux that was painted in Eulau.
