The jewellery factory Theodor Fahrner from Pforzheim first made a name for itself at the turn of the century, because it made artists' jewellery affordable. The company did not produce one-off pieces for a small elite like Lalique or Cartier, but rather mass-produced high-quality, creative designs in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites and occasionally precious stones. Jewellers 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. Every year, traveling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local retailers. One such sample case had been slumbering untouched in an attic for the last 40-plus years until we were privileged to discover it. It contained samples of all series from about 1919 until the dissolution of the company in 1979, mostly with a model number and marked with the "Original Fahrner" seal. The earclips here were also part of the large view assortment and are therefore unworn and impeccably preserved. The clips are made of luxurious silver and feature elaborately ornamented starfish. The surface is covered with fine vermicelli decoration and glittering marcasite roses surround the total of four turquoises. The pair was probably made in the 1960s and bears the original Fahrner label, with the old order number on the back. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs is offered in the catalogue "Theodor Fahrner. Jewellery between Avantgarde and Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.
