"Part of the essence of the Baroque, which had its heyday in the 17th century, is the swelling movement of all forms, which powerfully and vividly urge to merge into one another. To the jewellery the baroque curlicues give a special plasticity and lively strength." (From a 1950s Blachian Antique Jewellery (BAS) catalogue.) Founded as early as 1742 by Franz Eligius Blachian in Traunstein, Germany, the gold and silversmith Blachian Antik-Schmuck is dedicated to works of the past. Mostly cast in silver, more rarely in gold, the company produced jewellery whose individual forms were taken from works of art from different eras. Thus, in an old Blachian catalogue, in addition to Renaissance elements, Romanesque and Gothic forms and those from the time of the migration of peoples can be found. However, the largest part of Blachian's jewellery creations is made up of Baroque forms. The bracelet at hand, probably created in the middle of the 20th century, features large plastic elements that beautifully illustrate the principle of "swelling forms" described above. Seven large elements, mirrored in the center show sculptural acanthus leaves with sweeping tips. Grooved cuffs hold the bracelet links together. The bracelet found its way to us here in Berlin.

"Throughout the ages and the diversity of cultures, goldsmithing and silversmithing have given us unique works of beauty. In museums and private collections, these jewels still bear witness to the rich culture of bygone times. Blachian Antique Jewellery (BAS) conveys the beauty of these ancient masterpieces in true-to-the-original and true-to-the-work renditions, thus bringing luxurious pleasure. BAS is thus a mediator between the works of art of our ancestors and the people of the present time. BAS deepens and enriches the culture of the human soul." With these words the gold- and silversmith Blachian-Antik-Jewellery, founded already in 1742, describes itself in a sales catalog of the 1950s.
