Description

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 modern jewellery manufacturer how to make artistically convincing designs and quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The brooch is shown in the form of a curved abstract leaf, the surface of which is partly grooved and partly smoothly polished. The piece of jewellery is made of silver and is believed to have been executed in the 1950s. On the brooch sits a beautiful cultured pearl with rosy luster. The brooch came to us in a travelling salesman's sample case that had been slumbering untouched in an attic for the past 40+ years. The piece of jewellery here from the 1960s is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalogue "Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Discover all the other pieces of Fahrner jewellery we offer at this site.
