Brassler Carnelian Stickpin

Carnelian Curves

A carnelian smolders like a glowing ember in a golden frame of undulating, flowing curves.  The crisp geometry of the carnelian and the flowing design of the setting creates a wonderful contrast.  Created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was a gifted jewelry maker who in the early 1900s created a collection of stickpins, brooches and other jewels that are  miniature works of art.  He drew inspiration from nature, fantasy and past historical periods to create elegant jewels that are unique in their imagination and style.

This stickpin is finely crafted with a sturdy gold frame to protect the carnelian (see photo below).  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company, a double oval surrounding "14B" is stamped on the lower right of the reverse.

Cost:  $435

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and the top measures 5/8" by  just over 1/2".  It weighs 2.5 grams.
