An unusual silver brooch made by Theodor Fahrner in the 1920s. Fahrner was trained as a steel engraver, and was one of the pioneers of designer jewellery. He had freelance artists (designers) with ideas prepared by him working for him. He managed to turn the largely insignificant ring factory of his father in to one of the most creative jewellery companies in Europe. The workshops were based in Pforzheim in the Black Forrest in Germany. This brooch not only is set with graded marcasite (iron pyrites) and painted with black enamel, but has a carved shell cameo of two ladies looking in wonder at an erupting volcano.
