handbemalt

and handgemalt are interchangable as far as the general idea of hand painted goes. The difference is minute: while the more commonly used handgemalt refers directly to painted by hand (with reference to the decoration itself), handbemalt stands more for painted upon by hand (with reference to the item). In this context one often finds the respective noun Handmalerei which stands for painting by hand.
