Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewellery affordable because he combined modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite, as was the case with Lalique or Cartier. Instead, 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, travelling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local jewellers. 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 shows up as a leaf covered with a fine vermicellidecor, which was used on Fahrner jewellery as early as the 1930s. The leaf vein as well as the stem are adorned by enamel in a rich green, giving the piece even more closeness to nature. The brooch is made of lightly gilded silver. It was probably executed in the years around 1950 and speaks the formal language of its era. Particularly enameled jewellery is rare at Fahrner and therefore especially collectible. The catalogue "Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005 offers a wonderful overview of the wealth of jewellery. Fahrner jewellery is often collected. Discover all the other Fahrner jewellery we offer at this location.
