A. Walter Nancy, France - Pate De Verre ** Amazing Lizard Sculpture Paperweight For Sale

A. Walter Nancy, France -  Pate De Verre ** Amazing Lizard Sculpture Paperweight

A. Walter of Nancy, France (1869-1959). Pate de verre LIZARD. Walter was a master of the lost art of pate de verre, an art form where “glass paste” in a variety of colors is directed into a mold which is often first spot filled with a variety of colored glass pastes. The result can be exquisite, as in this example. Walter was one of the first to experiment with this technique in the modern era. The technique dates to ancient Egypt. Walter worked at the famous Daum glassworks in Nancy as their pate de verre expert up to the start of World War One when the Daum works closed for the duration. Walter joined the army. After the war, with Alsace Lorraine now repatriated to France, Walter established his own glass works using the signature “A Walter Nancy”. This beautiful lizard is 100% glass. The piece is signed “A. Walter Nancy” and “Berge”. Nancy is the city in Lorraine France (at times Germany) where Walter lived. Henri Berge (1870-1937) was a famous French sculptor. The detail of this piece is extraordinary. I took a number of close-up pictures to show the exquisite detail in this piece. It stands 3 7/16 inches tall and the base is about 2.5 by 2.5 inches. The lizard measures 3 5/8 inches from the tip of the nose to the bend in the tail. If the tail were straight, the lizard would be about 8 inches long. Condition is excellent with no chips, breaks, fractures, repairs, and just slight shelf wear. You will have a hard time finding a more detailed and perfect pate de verre sculpture. It is a masterpiece.

After being correctly informed that the signatures were hard to see, I added the last two pictures. I placed the light to the side so there is now some shadow relief. I hope this helps.
