    One of the finest pâte de verre ever, made by the french master of pâte de verre Amalric (and not Almeric) WALTER, after a design by Henri BERGÉ.
    Both worked first for the Daum Manufactory at Nancy (1904-1914) and then worked together (1918-1937) until BERGÉ died.
    The unique technique of pâte de verre is nearly impossible to imitate nowadays : costful, very long process, special materials,...
    This is one of my best piece in my collection (more than 100 Amalric WALTER pâte de verre), that I bought at auction for 5700.00€ (hammer price; = USD 7.630.00) in 2010, in France. A same piece was sold in 1999 at Christie's USD 13.800.00 and another USD 12.600.00 at Tokyo (11/30/2006).
    Dimensions : 8 7/8 inches (22,5 cm) high
    But beware : there are too many Amalric WALTER fakes on the art market. On the Amalric WALTER website (, it is said that at least 70% of the pieces sold nowadays are fake. I can believe that for I can see numerous fakes at auction too, even sold by famous auction houses (see the blacklist...).
