My second post featuring Jugendstil art that emerged from the art colony in Darmstadt. Very short lived but what amazing things emerged.


Jewelry by German designer Theodor Fahrner. Living from 1859-1919 , he founded a company that bore his name. Slightly more affordable than Tiffany and Cartier, you didn’t have to mortgage the family schloss to own a piece.
