Removing Painted on Labels

Is this easy to do?

Those swing top Spice Odyssey bottle from Wellington would be of good use...

Some of these labels are applied with a ceramic paint that is melted to the glass and can't be removed.

Yep, you ain't getting this paint off. I happen to work for a company who has decorated bottles supplied by a company near Montreal that does the Rogue bottles and a tonne of Quebec craft brewers decorated bottles. Paint is applied and baked on. Not coming off.
