Louis, after Nicholas' departure from the position as chief designer at Gallé. St Louis had been and still is one of the great old glass houses of France. In the early 1920s they were still trying to get their own back. Paul Nicolas cut a deal with St Louis he would make cameo glass for them using their facilities and then also he could use their facilities to make cameo glass for himself too. The pieces Nicolas made for St Louis were signed a number of ways, but quite soon they settled on DArgental.
Nicolas sneakily added a cross of Lorraine to the mark to indicate when he personally made a piece. When he made Cameo for himself pieces were signed P. Nicolas usually followed by Nancy. Paul Nicholas Cameo vase D' arengtal, with the cross of Lorraine.
