Antique Jugendstil - Schmuch / Art Nouveau brooch. Silver pearls, peridot and enamel. Made in Pforzheim, Germany, circa 1908 by Theodor Fahrner. 

Approx. 1 3/8 inches (32mm) across widest part; approx. 1 7/8 inches from top to bottom. Weighs 6.5grams.

Brooch consists of an arc or semi-circle, enameled in green and Colette set with peridot. Within the reserve formed by the arc, and extending downwards, is an openwork lattice of filigree scrolls and swags. A ring of pearls is set parallel to, and inside the arc. 3 elongated highly stylized tulip-shapes, enameled in a range of greens from almost white to bright. These are attached via silver loops, and are Therefore free floating. Alternating between the heads of the tulips are 4 pearls. From the bottom silver wire-work are 5 chains, gradated in length, each ending in a Colette set green peridot.

The pin at the back is hallmarked as follows: Maker's mark for Theodor Fahrner; 925; STERLING and GERMANY. Generally very good condition.

Negligible enamel wear, shown magnified in the 'photos is commensurate with age. Similar pieces by Theodor Fahrner are shown in the last group of 'photos.
