G. Vallon

The cherries are the only design associated with “G Vallon”. Little is known of this artist and this Cherry bowl appears to be his/her only known work. It is also possible that G Vallon was a pseudonym used by another artist. It is attituded to the production period of 1920 to 1930 and was probably made at Choisy-le-Roi glassworks, near Paris, where usually glass pieces for Etling brand were made.

Cristallerie Choisy-le-Roi made mold opalescent glass for designers who wanted their own designs turned into glass. In the 1930s the glassworks made glass for many other prominent artists like Hunebelle or Etling etc. The company did not survive the Second World War, so their entire production was made during the great heyday of Art Deco. Many glass makers disappeared during the Second World War when their factories were commandeered. By the end of the 1940s after the corporate customers were gone Cristallerie Choisy-le-Roi glassworks was owned by commune Sèvres of Paris, France.
