Art Deco pendant by Theodor Fahrner in smoky quartz, enamel, and gilt 935 silver. A spectacular piece of 1920s Art Deco history, this is one of Fahrner’s masterworks, displaying all of the characteristics that we love in Fahrner jewelry. The matching, attached chain is by Fahrner as well.

The gilt silver pendant features blue, green, and muted salmon color enamel, in squiggles and freeform shapes; a large triangular form that becomes the bail; corded wire circles; and a magnificent centerpiece of faceted smoky quartz. It measures 1-3/4” tall including the bail and 1-1/8” wide. The reverse is marked TF and 935.

The (tested) sterling silver chain is not gilded. It is made up of double-sided enameled links that alternate in size and color, and five-petaled floral shapes; the enamels match the pendant exactly. It measures 30” long and 1/8”-3/16” wide. The jump ring at the clasp is hallmarked, perhaps 935, but as of this writing, I cannot make it out. Since the chain will not slide through the bail (is not detachable) I believe that it is an original pairing.

Both the pendant and chain are in virtually flawless condition with no enamel loss, chipping, scratches, or other damage.

A photo of the pendant appears in the definitive book on Fahrner by Hase-Schmundt, Weber, and Becker. Chains with designs similar to this one are also featured.
