About the artist
Amalric Walter (France, 1870-1959) was a very good glassmaker who was originally trained as a ceramist in Sèvre, Daum persuaded him to come and work with them and develop the making of vases and figures in the difficult, newly rediscovered pâte de noche , which he has done with great success and especially in collaboration with Henri Bergé.
From 1919 to 1935 Walter worked as a self-employed person and started his own studio. He also still worked a lot with Henri Bergé, but he also collaborated with several other artists.
Walter is best known for his animal figures made of glass paste, but also for smaller utensils such as this vide poche, he has also made various pendants that were often worn with a silk cord by the most modern ladies from the better circles, 1920s.
Amalric Walter did not have a high production, each design was made in small editions, partly because of this his work is sought after and can be found in various private and museum collections.
