Now comes the economic miracle. Now there's carbonades already in the store and smoked flounder Now comes the economic miracle The German belly is also recovering and is already much rounder Now the knuckle of pork tastes good again in aspic. It's no wonder after the lost war! (Wolfgang Neuss, 1958) The first years of the young Federal Republic, which are so aptly sung about in this well-known hit song, saw a previously unseen increase in wealth and quality of life with the economic miracle. It was not until 1973 that the oil crisis put an end to the phenomenal rise. Before that, after the long years of war, food shortages, currency reform and initial reconstruction, the lust for life had also returned. In the German cities and parlors, when the economic miracle made possible a first new prosperity in the centers of industry and trade, the art of jewellery design also awoke to new life after many years of a dreamless sleep. Stylistically, the jewellery of these years was often oriented towards the non-representational abstraction of international post-war modernism. Heavy gold jewellery was a common status symbol at the time. The present brooch made of high-carat yellow gold is a beautiful example for the type of jewellery that was popular then. The brooch is designed as a dynamic swirling band and thus varies a motif that was already popular in the 19th century. Its design, however, is uncompromisingly modern. Its surface is polished to a shine at the edges, but otherwise it has a velvety matt finish thanks to a fine line engraving, thus revealing interesting light reflections.
