Art Deco brooch pin by Theodor Fahrner, Germany, a large bird with a natural coral stone, in 935 silver. Strong and fierce, this skillfully rendered creature has great presence. Its claws grip a natural coral cabochon, perhaps its egg, that is framed with a heavily beaded surface representing ground. The head, wings, and tail are beautifully detailed; the eye socket has no stone nor was one intended. According to the definitive Fahrner book, ed. Hase-Schmundt, et al, it dates from between 1926-32.
It is signed TF and 935, hard to read because I have not cleaned the piece. It measures 2-3/8” from the tip of the beak to the tip of the tail, and about 3/4” at widest. There is a safety clasp working perfectly. The condition is exemplary.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Silver/Coral, Size: 2-3/8" x 3/4"
