Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim made artists' jewellery affordable, because he combined modern forms with democratic materials. No individual pieces were created for a small elite as with Lalique or Cartier, but the designs were produced in series in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites and now and then precious stones. Jewelers and department stores throughout Europe sold the jewellery, which Fahrner advertised extensively in journals and magazines: "Fahrner Jewellery - based on designs by the best artists" allowed every woman to participate in a modern life full of beauty. Sales representatives with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local jewelers every year. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewelry had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more until it was offered to us. It contained samples of almost every series from about 1919 until the company's dissolution in 1979, most with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The brooch here is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The brooch shows itself in the form of a slightly curved line, the surface of which is grooved and partially set with marcasites. This creates an exciting design. The piece of jewelry is made of silver and was probably executed in the 1950s. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalog "Theodor Fahrner. Jewellery between avant-garde and tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.
