An informative history of the prominent German firm of jewelers long headed by Theodor Fahrner (1859-1919), this well-illustrated catalogue presents more than 350 jeweled and enameled pieces dating primarily from 1900 through the 1920s, including numerous works designed by individual artists associated with the company around the turn of the century. Fine reproductions of the exhibited objects are accompanied by stylistic analyses of their various Jugendstil and Art Deco motifs, discussions of the firm's operation under Fahrner and his successor Gustav Braendle, and an examination of the relationship between artistic and commercial approaches to fashion and jewelry design in the early 20th century.
