Lovely Art Deco 935 silver brooch with amazonite and matte enamel by Theodor Fahrner, circa late 1926. It measures 2 7/16" long and 5/16" tall, and features an strong design with a custom octagonal cabochon cut amazonite stone, spirals alternating with blue matte enamel "dots" surrounded by soldered corded wire. The silver has a gilded finish. The reverse has a T-bar hinge and safety clasp. It is signed: TF (linked) in a circle, 935 (double struck; 935 is a higher grade of silver than Sterling which is 925), like the markings for item 2.27 shown on page 262 of the Fahrner book. The piece is in excellent, original condition, and is extremely well made.
Theodor Fahrner is Germany's best known jewelry manufacturer, and is highly collectible. Examples can be found in many books, especially the fabulous book devoted to Fahrner jewelry, Theodor Fahrner Jewelry... Between Avant Garde and Tradition. Deco Fahrner jewelry is particularly desirable, and this is a lovely example of the "Matte Enamel Spiral Motifs" jewelry shown on pages 212-215.
