Description
Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim occupies a special place in the history of Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery. For Theodor Fahrner and later his successor Gustav Braendle knew better than almost any other modern jewelry manufacturer how to make artistically convincing designs and quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewellery affordable by combining modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite like Lalique or Cartier, but 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 jewellers. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewelry had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more until it was offered to us for sale. It contained samples of almost all series from about 1919 until the dissolution of the company in 1979, including very rare pieces not listed in the literature, which were apparently made only in very small numbers. Most of the jewellery pieces are marked with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The ring here from this model collection is therefore unworn and in very good condition. It is designed with round ring face made of filigree bars and holds in its center a citrine of sunny yellow color. The striking piece of jewelry is made of gold-plated sterling silver. The ring was probably executed in the years around 1965 and inspires with its summery charisma. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs can be found in the catalog "Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Discover all the other Fahrner jewelry we offer at this site.
