Anne, nice finds ;D
Both Walther and Inwald marked 'Belge' for the Belgium market I presume. German production was not so very highly estimated I guess.
Look :

and what a shame, no photo of Walther's ATLAS bowl found on my site  :-X

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

 ;D Hi Pamela.

I much prefer the pink version than my flint version.  :)

Perhaps not quite identical as I first thought :-\  Mine has clearly defined leaves at the base http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-6027, whereas the pink version marked BELGE has simplistic random shapes instead.  Curious.   I wonder if the pink version is a copy?

I just can't imagine Inwald marking their glass with BELGE. Nor Walther. The concession made to a country for export would surely be to write in that country's language eg. Tchecoslovaquie (for France) or MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA (for the UK, USA etc).

Inwald do appear to have marked some of their wares 'Fait en Belgique'. I have seen two 11282 Barolac Tulip vases with a moulded 'fait en Belgique' mark. The mould detail appeared identical to my opal examples.

Interestingly my Walther Luxor is also marked 'Fait en Belgique', see here: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7361
