Brassler Citrine Stickpin

Embers and Scrolls

A beautifully cut citrine with shades of golden honey and blood orange smolders like a glowing ember in a setting of fluid, rhythmic scrolls. This striking stickpin was created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was an inventive jeweler who created miniature works of art. He found inspiration in distant and past cultures, nature and his own fertile imagination to create magically alluring stickpins and other jewels.

This stickpin is finely crafted in 14kt gold.  Note the sturdy pin stem which secures the pin when worn and the strong frame which holds and protects the citrine (photo below).  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company, a double oval surrounding "14B" is stamped on the lower reverse partially hidden by the pin stem.

Cost:  $485

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and the top measures 9/16" by 7/16".  It weighs 2.3 grams.

Hans Brassler, Jeweler Extraordinaire

Hans Brassler is known for the beauty and artistry of the jewels he created.  Born in Germany,  he studied jewelry design at the Academie Julian in Paris and is reported to have earned a gold medal for "his original and artistic work" at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900.  He emigrated to the United States in 1902 and worked with Tiffany & Co. as a silverware and jewelry designer.  In 1909 he founded his own jewelry workshop, The Brassler Company, and served as vice president and artistic director for six years.  During this time he created an extraordinary collection of strikingly original jewels.  His daughter, Margaret Brassler Kane, is the noted 20th century sculptor.
