"The beauty of clothing is enhanced to an extraordinary degree by the distinctive effect of Fahrner jewellery. No lady of taste will want to do without it in the future." (From a brochure of the company Theodor Fahrner from the 1920s) Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewellery affordable because he combined modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite like Lalique or Cartier, but rather the designs were mass-produced in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites and occasionally precious stones. Jewellers 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. Every year, traveling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local retailers. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewellery had 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 brooch here is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The brooch consists of two parts, which are, so to speak, mirror-inverted opposite each other. Glittering marcasite roses and interesting surface structures enliven the exciting design. The brooch was probably executed in the 1960s and bears the original Fahrner label as well as the Fahrner seal. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.

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