Max Fröhlich, one of the major pioneers of contemporary Swiss jewellery, whose production has been partly influenced by Bauhaus theories, is characterised by the diversity of his inspirations and technical experiences. This brooch is inspired by the cast iron jewellery of the Ashantis of Ghana, which, made from rolled wax threads, have the same wavy decoration.

Born in 1908, died in 1997, Max Fröhlich taught for many years at the Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich and influenced many of the designers in our collections. In particular, he transmitted to Johanna Dahm his interest in this particular technique and in ethnic productions.
