The French chanson "Les Feuilles Mortes", interpreted by Edith Piaf among others, is also known in English as "Autumn Leaves". Around 1960, the chanson, which was already more than a decade old at that time, developed into a real hit: artists such as Serge Gainsbourg, Dalida and Francoise Hardy interpreted the melancholy sounds in their own way, and through Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis the song became a jazz standard. A little later, the present brooch was also made, which is also dedicated to the autumn leaves theme and the local forest. A naturalistically veined maple leaf is carved from lightly translucent carnelian. Presumably, the naturalistic stone carving was made in Idar-Oberstein, which has long been a center of German stone carving. A finely worked oak branch of high karat gold with two stag bones (Cf. "Learn more") is superimposed on the leaf. Dipped entirely in russet, golden yellow and ivory white, the brooch displays the colours of autumn. An excellently preserved piece of jewellery from the years around 1970 - a very personal jewel for all lovers of this golden season.

Grandeln (stag bones) is the name given to the rudimentary canine teeth of the red deer, which are considered prized hunting trophies and are the most beautiful jewellery of the hunter's wife or the huntsman himself. The brooch here captures a pair of the coveted trophies and holds them in 18-karat gold. A classic oak leaf motif frames the grands and visually transports us to our native forest, home to the deer whose trophies adorn the center of the piece.
