Description: The firm of Giannini & Hilgart was founded at Chicago in 1899 by Orlando Giannini (1861-1928) and Fritz Hilgart (1869-1942). Giannini, born in Cincinnati, became a sculptor like his father before turning to mural painting and the designing of mosaics and stained glass. Hilgart was trained in his native Germany as a glass cutter. The partners created stained glass windows and mosaics for numerous architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as glass lampshades for popular Teco pottery lamps. Although Giannini left the partnership and moved to California in 1907, the firm continued to operate. Giannini & Hilgart still exists in Chicago under different ownership.
