Art Deco Silver, Marcasite and Black Onyx Necklace
Unmarked but very Th. Fahrner like Art Deco necklace with a geometric shaped pendant studded with marcasites surrounding a rectangular simply faceted black onyx centre.
The pendant hangs from a square suspender, turned on to one corner, which also houses a black onyx stone.
The ornately designed integral chain is marked Sterling and Germany and is fitted with an unusual and very secure clasp.
It’s clear a great deal of thought has gone into this necklace and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was made by Fahrner – it shows their quality of craftsmanship and it’s not at all unknown for the maker’s mark to be missing from some of their pieces.
Circa 1920’s. The pendant, including its suspender, is around 6.5 cm long and the chain has a length of 49 cm.
