Theodor Fahrner, at the age of 24, in 1883, took over his father’s business and workshop in Pforzheim, Germany manufacturing high-quality and mass-producing rings, gold and silverwear, and jewellery designs by artists in the Mathildenhohe artists colony located near Frankfurt, Germany. By 1887-1895, the firm expanded into manufacturing other jewellery, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and earrings employing artists who designed jewellery. Jewellery artists included were Franz Boeres, Rudolf Bosselt, Max Joseph Gradl, Hermann Haussler, George Kleemann, Ferdinand Morawe and others creating jewellery of Art Nouveau style through the first decade of the 20th Century that was a combination of English Art Nouveau design before 1900, (floral in character), Japanese applied art and prints, and later more abstract phase of Viennese work). Fahrner allowed the artist/designer’s name to appear on their pieces along with his own TF trademark The firm made affordable silver jewellery. Working in silver, enamel, marcasites, iron and semi-precious stones. The TF trademark was introduced. In 1919, Theodor Fahrner died and the firm was purchased by Gustav Braendle and the firm’s name became Gustav Braendle, (Herbert Braendle in 1952), Theodor Fahrner Nachf. In the 1920s and 1930s into WWII, the Deco style jewellery of Fahrner was produced by the firm with filigree jewellery produced in 1932. In 1945, a bomb destroyed all of the archives. The jewellery pieces produced by Theodor Fahrner’s company are sought after by collectors.
