Parallel to the geometric, cool-white diamond jewels of Art Deco, yet another formal language developed in Germany. From the leaf ornaments of the expressive Art Nouveau designs of the Wiener Werkstätten and Theodor Fahrner grew jewellery with plant shapes, the so-called "vegetable" rings, brooches and bracelets. This type of jewellery got its name from the decoration with tendrils, blossoms and leaves amongst which pearls and precious stones peep out like ripe fruit. Thus, "vegetable" jewels appear like little gardens, made of precious materials in miniature. They remained fashionable well into the post-war period. The brooch at hand is a representative of this type and subordinates its form entirely to the decoration. Shaped as a simple, long rectangle, it provides an ideal setting for a rich ornament of golden leaves and precious stones. As in a golden flower bed, matt gold leaves and berries twine around diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and rubies. The colourful gemstones protrude from the foliage like precious multicoloured fruits. They are set in fine milgrain settings; the diamonds in platinum, which emphasizes their white colour. The unique goldsmith's work was created in Germany, as its hallmarking shows. In its design it is reminiscent of the work of the Wilm brothers of Munich, who made a name for themselves with similar designs. It is in excellent condition.
