Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim occupies a special place in the history of Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery. For Theodor Fahrner and later his successor Gustav Braendle knew better than almost any other jewelry manufacturer of the modern era how to make artistically convincing designs and quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The brooch features a doubled, curved, and asymmetrical shape that captures the contemporary taste of the 1950s. Fine texturing creates a dynamic link to the sweep of the design. Dark sparkling marcasites add highlights and pull coherently across the design. The brooch came to us in a traveling salesman's sample suitcase. The suitcase slumbered untouched in an attic for the last 40+ years. This piece of jewelry from the 1950s is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalog "Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Discover all the other Fahrner jewelry we offer at this site.
