Victor Amalric Walter (1870 1959) was a French glass manufacturer. After working at Daum for more than 10 years, Walter decided to create his own glass studio after the First World War in 1915. The staff of his workshop in Nancy on Rue Claudot was small (maximum 8-10 workers). Nevertheless, from 1919 to 1935 he cast at least 500 models in collaboration with Berger and other famous sculptors. These works were always created in small quantities due to the complex casting and firing techniques. After 1935, Walter’s workshop closed, he gradually lost his sight and could no longer work.
