The small sculptures are cast in the form of light brown and green lizards which are fixed to an ashtray colored in various tones of yellowish or orange and green. Signature: "A Walter Nancy" inscribed on one side of the scarab and "Bergé SC" on the other. A note about the manufacturer: Amalric Walter is known as one of the most prolific glass artist working with pâtes de verre at the turn of the 20th century. Amalric Walter (1870-1959) was a student of the Ecole de Sèvres. He first showed his pâtes de verre in 1903 at the Salon des Artistes Français. His first works, modeled after various sculptures, were first noted by the brothers Daum. By 1906, the Daum brothers provided an atelier for Walter in Nancy. The first models were principally provided by Henri Bergé, Daum's chief designer, basing many of his designs first on prominent sculptures, then on nature (primarily small animals such as scarabs, crabs, beetles, or crayfish). Walter produced over 100 models for Daum by 1915. Following World War I, Walter installed himself in Nancy in his own independent shop. There, he took up much of the same work he conducted for Daum. Bergé continued to work with him and many other artists soon joined, including Mercier, Corette, Lejan and Houillon, amongst others. less
