Among the best testimonials to the École de Nancy are the collaborative works of the artists belonging to the group. They bear conspicuous witness to the quality of the collective work and confer a magnificent legitimacy on the alliance.

The present double door is a collective work of Émile André (designer), Eugène Vallin (cabinetmaker, 1856-1936), and Jacques Gruber (glass artist, 1870-1936).
