Description
The German jewelry manufacturer Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewelry affordable as early as 1900, because he combined modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite, as was the case with Lalique or Cartier. Instead, 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. But even in the post-war period, Fahrner jewellery remained a household name. The company always followed the latest fashions, which were translated into affordable materials and consistently high quality. Travelling salesmen with large sample cases then presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to the local dealers every year. One such sample case had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more until we were allowed 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 are therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The curved clips are in keeping with the modernist taste of the 1960s, which featured abstract shapes and textured metals. A glittering trim of rhinestones enriches the design with white light reflections. Still on the ear clips is the label, which notes an internal reference probably to the selling price.
