Fahrner Secessionist Gold Brooch
Rare Secessionist broch in 14 ct. gold by Theodor fahrner dating from circa 1910.

Set at lower centre is a fin, strongly coloured wood opal.
Marked on the reverse with the encircled TF together with Déposé and 14C.
Probably designed for Fahrner by Max Gradl, the brooch is 3 cm wide by a fraction over 2.5 cm in height.
