The amethyst colour and the oroplastic band is most associated with Moser's work. Walther & Sohne produced a number of designs with this style during the Art Deco period. The history of the company is sadly rather obscure, very little has been published about them to date. We know that it was founded by August Walther in 1888 and was eventually nationalised following World War 2 becoming VEB Sachsenglas. Following reunification they, along with most East German glassmakers, closed.
