"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". So we read in a brochure from the 1920s of the company Theodor Fahrner from Pforzheim. Salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local jewellers every year. 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 marked with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The brooch here comes from this collection and is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The brooch from the years around 1960 shows itself as a curved leaf shape. The closeness to nature is further emphasized by a pearl with a rosy luster. The surface of the brooch is very finely grooved, pierced with small crescents and set with marcasites, creating an exciting play of light reflections. The brooch is also strongly charged with content, because the leaf as a sign of the earth, the pearl as a sign of water and the moons for the air and the sky - three elements united on a small brooch. Fahrner jewellery is often collected. Discover all the other pieces of Fahrner jewellery we offer at this location.
