They also manufactured under the name of Stumpf Touvier Viollet and Co Around this time they made cut glass and ruby glass, and then after the late 1870’s they made opaline glass, Venetian style glass, imitation rock crystal and some iridescent glass.
In 1900 Berlage designed tableware for them. During the early 1900’s much of what they produced was iridescent. Camille Tutre de Varreux joined around 1910, and designed iridescent cameo glass. Vases designed by Varreux are signed de Vez.
