Maitland-Smith Blown-glass, Bronze and Tesselated Stone Pair of Modernist Table Lamps
Guessing which one of the distinguished designers commissioned by Maitland-Smith was responsible for this pair of terrific and slightly wild (if not downright farouche) lamps is a great game to play. Our money is on Tony Duquette and Hutton Wilkinson (masters of super-confident and audacious bricolage), but even if we're wrong everybody wins.

About Maitland-Smith (from their site):
"For nearly 40 years Maitland-Smith has been in the business of creating exquisite and unique decorative accessories, lighting and accent furniture. Our design roots, however, go much deeper. Antiques from 17th and 18th Century England have always played an important role early in our history; inspiring designs that captured the appearance and quality of the originals. Over time, however, we have found that our designs have evolved and today incorporate style, materials and methods found in many other parts of the world.
Today Maitland-Smith is an industry leader well known for its world-class quality and innovative design. Our areas of expertise include metal casting, finely executed porcelains, sophisticated finishing techniques, detailed hand painting, beautiful inlaid marquetry and the finest hand carved woodwork. Leather, penshell and eggshell are just a few of the multitude of materials that are used to create Maitland-Smith treasures. In collaboration with some of the industry’s greatest tastemakers including Tony Duquette, Celerie Kemble, Susan Hable, Donald Bustraan, LaBarge and the Museums of New Mexico, our talented craftsmen collaborate to create distinctive accessories, lighting, mirrors and furniture for connoisseurs around the world. At Maitland-Smith, we take great pride in the quality of our materials and the highly skilled artisans who fashion these unique pieces each year in our company-owned workshops. Our main office and showroom are located in High Point, North Carolina, where our design, marketing, sales and administrative staff are located."We can assist with shipping and blanket wrapping in the US for all furniture items.
