In the German history of jewellery , Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim occupies a special place. For Theodor Fahrner and later his successor Gustav Braendle knew how to make artistically convincing designs and quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the epochs of Art Nouveau and Art Deco like hardly any other modern jewellery manufacturer. But even during the period of reconstruction after 1945, Fahrner jewellery remained a household name. At first, the company mainly produced designs that formally continued the old successes. But soon Pforzheim was also producing in the taste of the new era. Interesting and unusual structures, daring volumes and expressive reliefs were in demand. "Textures fascinate craftsmen today more than ever before," wrote Graham Hughes in "Modern Jewelry," London 1963. The necklace here is a fine example from the Farhrner manufactory. Five triangular links are set side by side to form the centerpiece. The surface of these links is lightly hatched textured and at the top the hatching staggers to form a small polished square. Pod-like links lead to the clasp. Since the early years of the company, traveling salesmen with large sample cases had presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local jewelers each year. One such sample case had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more 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 piece of jewellery from the 1960s presented here comes from this sample case and is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. An old price tag with the order number has survived on the necklace. The wholesale price was 55,- D-Mark. Fahrner jewellery is a pleasure to collect.

Jewellery between avant-garde and tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005.
