A pair of green art deco candlestick holders made by Walther & Sohne, in the 1930's.

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, which they made during the 1930's and 40's. They also produced a range of Cloud Glass called 'Oralit'. Like many German businesses, the company was nationalised after World War 2, and became VEB Sachsenglas. Many of their art deco designs continued production under this name until the 1960's. The company closed in the early 1990's.
