Brassler Citrine Stickpin

Embers and Scrolls


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

Brassler was a wonderfully imaginative jeweler who created a small collection of strikingly beautiful stickpins and other small jewels in the years around 1910.  He often wedded elements of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and classical design to create alluring miniature works of art.

The stickpin is finely crafted with a strong gold pin stem securing the jewel when worn and a sturdy frame holding and protecting the citrine.  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 (see photo below).

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.
