Fahrner jewellery was also a household name during the period of reconstruction after 1945. Production in Pforzheim was in line with the tastes of the new era. In the 1960s, silver, which could be easily worked, was the most popular material. Interesting and unusual structures and daring volumes were in demand. The brooch presented here is a fine example of this. It appears as a light band that forms into a fish. Sparkling marcasites and small turquoises give the design that certain something. The hatched surface refracts the light and creates a simple but exciting design. Since the early years of the company, traveling salesmen with large sample cases had presented the innovations developed in Pforzheim to local jewellers every year. One such sample case had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40-plus years until it was offered to us. It contained samples of almost all series from about 1919 until the dissolution of the company in 1979, mostly marked with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The 1960s gem we have here comes from this sample case and is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. Fahrner jewellery is readily collected. Discover all the other pieces of Fahrner jewelry we offer at this site. A wonderful overview is provided by the catalogue "Theodor Fahrner. Jewellery between avant-garde and tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005.
