Out of stock


A lovely, potently-designed pendant from the Theodor Fahrner Evening Jewellery range c1929. Partial TF stamp is still visible, along with the “935” mark for the quality of silver used in the pendant. This is a petite, slim pendant but has the potency of the Art Deco design as designed by Gustav Braendle for the company of Theodor Fahrner, c1929.

It is executed in a geometric design with lines, rectangles and squares and dotted with lots of marcasites to give it the sparkle factor required for this evening wear range. Two bezel-set square cut carnelian stones sit aloft a vertically rectangular cabochon of onyx. This pendant is very similar to the examples in the book “Jewelry between Avantgarde and Tradition” by Schmundt, Weber, Becker -page 200.

As this has fairly petite proportions compared to some of the chunkier pieces I have seen from this era, I did suspect if it had been a large, dramatic earring previously. It does, however, work so well as a powerful punch of design in a pendant form. It measures approx 5.7cm in height and approx 1.4cm wide. In excellent condition. I am happy to include the sterling chain in the images too, as it seems to suit it so well proportion-wise. The chain measures approx 45cm (17.75 inches) in length. The silver bale is curled around, which doesn’t bother me but if you wishes to replace the bale-an easy job for a jeweller.

I shall send by international tracked and signed or else Special Delivery within the UK. Thank you.
