Orchid Brooch and two sets of earrings with marcasites and pearl in each piece of jewerly. Theodor Fahrner, at the age of 24, in 1883, took over his fathers business and workshop in Pforzheim, Germany manufacturing high-quality and mass-producing rings, gold and silverwear, and jewelry designs by artists in the Mathildenhohe artists colony located near Frankfurt, Germany. Jewelry artists included were Franz Boeres, Rudolf Bosselt, Max Joseph Gradl, Hermann Haussler, George Kleemann, Ferdinand Morawe and others creating jewelry of Art Nouveau and/or Jugendstil style an artist style that arose in Germany about the mid-1890s and continued through the first decade of the 20th Century that was a combination of English Art Nouveau design before 1900, (floral in character), Japanese applied art and prints, and later more abstract phase of Viennese work. Working in silver, enamel, marcasites, iron and semi-precious stones, the designers made each contemporary style of jewelry in hundreds of jewelry pieces available to a wide segment of the population exporting large quantities to near and distant cities including London and the U. Theodor Fahrners firm manufactured and mass produced high quality rings, gold and silverware, and sterling silver jewelry in necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and earrings designed by artists in the Mathildenhohe artists colony. Fahrners jewelry designs contained lots of enamel, sterling silver metal of various silver content, and faceted colored stones of turquoise, green agate, amazonite, chalcedony, rock crystal, pearl, marcasites, hematite, coral, onyx, and amethyst. In the 1920s and 1930s into WWII, the Deco style jewelry of Fahrner was produced by the firm with filigree jewelry produced in 1932. In 1945, a bomb destroyed all of the archives. In 1952, Gustav Braendle died with son Herbert now leading the company. 1954 brought on a reduced workforce due to changing jewelry fashions and by 1960, the company was producing modern silver jewelry with stones expanded by the Antique Art series of gold and silver with Roman and Egyptian motifs.
