Lona Schaeffer (1902–1989) was the eldest daughter of Peer Smed and trained in her father's workshop at 176 Johnson Street in Brooklyn, New York. Her style is distinctly redolent of his work, and it is certain that many pieces which bear his mark were wrought by her; their style draws from the weighty, sculptural Danish skonvirke style. She specialized in jewelry and oversize flatware pieces with jack-in-the-pulpit blossoms and calla lilies for ornament. Her pieces were retailed by Shreve, Crump & Low among others. There are less than ten known examples of her hollowware, all softer and with more scalloping and curvature than her father's work. Together, the two made some of the only known Arts & Crafts sterling studio hollowware in the 1930's and 1940's to come out of Brooklyn.
