Grandeln are the rudimentary canine teeth of the red deer, which are considered valuable hunting trophies and are the most beautiful jewellery of the hunter's wife or the hunter himself. The gold lapel pin here holds two grandeln and the matching cufflinks each hold one of the precious forest treasures. The grandeln are teeth in a beautiful dark pattern, which apparently come from a handsome stag. The pin and cufflinks present the grandeln in an elaborate goldsmith's work, set in acorn motifs and set in tricolour gold. While the oak leaves are made of so-called green gold, an alloy of gold with only silver addition, the little hats of the acorns are forged of red gold, a gold alloy with copper addition. Classic yellow gold, which contains both silver and copper, forms the basis of the representative set. Made in the years around 1960, the set is wonderfully preserved and found its way to us from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It reminded us of Empress Auguste Victoria's large hunting necklace, which Wilhelm II had made by G. Froehlich in Rankestraße in Berlin. A stylish jewellery with the most beautiful grandels, in the long tradition of courtly hunting jewellery.
