In the history of Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery, Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim occupies a special place. Theodor Fahrner and later his successor Gustav Braendle knew how to make artistically convincing designs and high-quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings like hardly any other modern jewellery manufacturer. Every year, travelling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new designs developed in Pforzheim to local jewellers. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewellery has lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more until it was offered to us. It contained samples of almost every series from about 1919 until the company's dissolution in 1979, most with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The present brooch is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The brooch is made of gilded silver and shows itself in the form of an elegantly curved spiral whirl. Its center is open worked and shows small spirals of cord wire. At the bottom of the composition shimmers a fine cultured pearl accompanied by small marcasites. The brooch was probably made in the 1950s and bears the original Fahrner label with the old order number and the former wholesale price of 27,- DM. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalogueue "Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.
