The jewellery factory Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewellery affordable, because the designs of the house combined modern forms with democratic materials. No individual pieces were created for a small elite, as was the case with Lalique or Cartier, but the designs were mass-produced in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites, and occasionally 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. Every year, traveling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local jewelers. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewellery 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 as a large flower made of gilded silver with with eight small turquoises. The petals are decorated with fine cord piercings, the stamens and the stem are set with metallic glittering marcasite roses, creating an exciting shape with a beautiful play of different degrees of reflection. The brooch was probably executed in the years around 1960, because it speaks the formal language of that era. The original Fahrner label with the old order number and the Fahrner seal have been preserved on the brooch. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalogue "Theodor Fahrner. Jewellery between avant-garde and tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.
