I am particularly drawn to the jewelry of Theodor Fahrner and Meyle & Mayer, or actually any of the German jewelry designers. I decided to collect antique and vintage jewelry after a couple years of sourcing pieces locally at antique malls, yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, and auctions. (Read more)

  1. I do not mind at all :) I definitely think it looks like the enamel work Haussler did for Fahrner and could be part of an unsigned lower range by Fahrner. The center of the brooch is very similar to...

  20. Beautiful necklace! It is by Knoll & Pregizer, a company that was in Pforzheim, Germany.
  21. That's interesting about MBCo and Fahrner. The necklace sounds like it was a great find!
  22. Thanks, I do have that one already! I was hopeful there was another reference book on plique.

  30. Thanks so much for the information, Jewels1900! I will remember to add the word schmuck when researching.

  36. I think I have only one Fahrner chain that has a mark but it is an enamel one from the late 1920s.
  37. That is interesting that you have a similar pendant that is unsigned. It does make you wonder whether the companies tried to copy each other's work or had some kind of partnership to sell their work....
  38. I had wondered the same thing, that someone might have wanted to make a longer chain/necklace into a shorter one and in doing so, the mark has been lost.
  39. Thanks for sharing the video! :) She has some great pieces!
  40. I agree, it is interesting that the art deco pieces were under Gustav Braendle, I wonder if the company would have taken the same route if Theodor Fahrner would have been alive during the 1920s.
  41. Thanks so much for the lovely comments TassieDevil, racer4four, Peasejean55, kyratango, and Wandlessfairy! :) Peasejean55- I agree it is interesting, I have not seen many Eric Kleinhempel designed ...
  42. Stunning brooch!
