    Found this intresting brooch in a local church bazar and I'd appreciate any information on both the artist and poet. I did some research but was not able to find much information.
    I'd appreciate any help.
    Thank you all ahead of time.

      Thank you Ivan49
      I hadn't found these.
      I'm also curious to know why and when he commissioned to make this brooch?

      He made a number of these of German Poets in 1923 I have seen on the net.

      The sculptor, Carl Seffner also made one of Johann Goethe for instance. It was popular in France during the early 20's for sculptors to make small busts and keepsakes of other famous people such as poets, writers, sculpters etcf.

      I appreciate this info.
      It's nice to know why they were made and when.
      Makes the piece more special.
