Conrad Hinrich Freiherr von Donner (1876-1937) was married to Agnes Freifrau von Donner, née von Bülow (b.1888-1962). The necklace was given to their daughter, Agnes Ingeborg, most likely on the occasion of her confirmation. The clasp is engraved with her initials. Conrad Hinrich Freiherr von Donner's great grandfather, Conrad Hinrich Donner (1774-1854) was the financier, statesman and art collector, who founded the Hamburg-based Donner Bank in 1789.
