Theodor Fahrner Jewellery

Theodor Fahrner was a manufacturing jeweller in Pforzheim, Germany at the start of the 20th century. Responsible for a fairly prolific output of low carat gold and silver gem-set jewellery in the jugenstil and Art Nouveau taste. Fahrner's jewellery was mass manufactured as costume jewellery and sold throughout Europe, including in Liberty of London, with further pieces imported by Murrle Bennett & Co. Pieces are frequently colourful, set with enamel, semi precious gemstones and marcasite. 

Artists to design pieces for Theodor Fahrner include Henry van de Velde, Patriz Huber and J.M Olbrich. Necklaces, buckles, brooches, buttons, bracelets and rings all sell very well at auction, with collectors eager to acquire unseen or 'market-fresh' pieces.
