About

Ernst Treusch, Leipzig, Germany: Art Deco Tourmaline Diamond Gold Necklace 18k yellow gold, tourmaline (approx. 18 carats in total) , brilliant cut diamonds Length 44.5 cm (approx. 17 15/16"), Width 1.5 cm (approx. 5/8") Marks: Maker’s mark (E with trident), gold content mark '750' Germany, 1927 – 1933 A highly collectable, unique machine age necklace by jeweller Ernst Treusch, co-founder of the Leipzig School of Decorative Arts (Leipziger Kunstgewerbeschule). The necklace is composed of circle- and spherical-shaped base elements: circles, semicircles, quadrants, spherical segments, pipes and halfpipes. 29 semicircle elements alternate with suspensions decorated with spherical- and pipe-shaped segments. 14 of the 29 semicircle elements are identically set with a green tourmaline, the 15 elements in between are each shaped differently out of circle- and spherical-shaped elements and irregular placed diamonds. They form futuristic, robot-like masks, displaying a collection of curious with their varying expressions and moods, bearing witness of the subtle humour and creative power of their designer. The necklace reflects the tendencies in contemporary arts and theatre. A source of inspiration might have been the masks and costumes of Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballett at the Bauhaus. In 1929 the Bauhaus theatre toured through numerous German cities and Switzerland. Other sources of inspiration might have been the robot in Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis shown in 1927 in Berlin. Works of Ernst Treusch bear solely the company’s mark. Records about designers and goldsmiths working for his company are few. Of those who could be so far identified working for Ernst Treusch come in consideration for the design of the necklace Theodor Wende, Erna Zarges-Dürr and Gertrude Fries-Arauner.
