The jewelry factory Theodor Fahrner from Pforzheim first made a name for itself at the turn of the century, because it made artists' jewelry affordable. The company did not produce one-off pieces for a small elite like Lalique or Cartier, but rather mass-produced high-quality, creative designs in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites and occasionally precious stones. Jewelers and department stores throughout Europe sold the jewellery, which Fahrner advertised extensively in magazines and journals: "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 had been slumbering untouched in an attic for the last 40-plus years until we were privileged to discover it. It contained samples of all series from about 1919 until the dissolution of the company in 1979, mostly with a model number and marked with the "Original Fahrner" seal. The earclips here were also part of the large view assortment and are therefore unworn and impeccably preserved. The flower-shaped clips each hold a cultured pearl and show on the petals the fine cord soldering that characterized Fahrner filigree jewelry since 1932. Even into the 1950s, this surface structure was popular and was executed in different variations. A light gilding, the so-called gold wash, gives the earrings their characteristic color. The earrings are strongly reminiscent of the flower of the calla, which is considered poisonous, but convinces with its beauty and finds its way into bouquets and on windowsills. In the calyx sits a rosy shimmering pearl, like a dewdrop in the morning and gives denn earrings another reference point to nature. Still on the earclips are the so-called Fahrner seals and the TF label, which were used since the early 1950s (see Theodor Fahrner. Schmuck zwischen Avantgarde und Tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005, p. 265). The old order number is noted on the back of the label. A little time travel back to the 1950s! Discover all the other pieces of Fahrner jewelry we offer at this location.
