Fabulous Source for Collectors and Dealers Alike! I have a rare design Theodor Fahrner Dragonfly Brooch on my website. The exact Dragonfly Brooch is featured in the original Fahrner Design Book with the date 12th September 1927 would love it if you wanted to show a picture here as so many pieces of Fahrner Jewelry are becoming one of a kind now it is great if we can preserve their record for posterity. Best Wishes! Kitty

thanks for all the photos. I have a small collection of Fahrner jewelry. rings,bracelets,and neclaces, that belonged to my mother. given to her by her mother early 20th century stuff. Most relatives were killed in the war [WWII], so not much history left. But after looking at your pics, I think I may have a chrysoprase ring. Very cool! thanks for posting

Very excited. I've been trying to identify an arts & crafts silver brooch - a styalised tree containing an opal matrix - and now I know it is a Theodor Fahrner.  The stamp has both the 950 TF & REG.D MB&Co as shown in picture 37.
