August Walther & Sohne AG (or Walther & Sohne for short) was established in 1888 by August Walther. In 1932 the company merged with Saxonian Glass, and was renamed Sachsische Glasfabrik August Walther and Sohne AG. Walther & Sohne are best known for their superb range of Art Deco centrepieces, figurines, bowls and vases, some of which are shown below, which they made during the 1930's and 40's. They also produced a range of Cloud Glass called 'Oralit'.
