Hans Brassler Coral Brooch
| An alluring, softly glowing coral cabochon rests
in an elegant brooch that imaginatively weds elements of
Neoclassical, Art Deco and Asian design. Created by Hans
Brassler in 14kt gold, circa 1910.
The reverse of the brooch is as finely crafted as the front. Note the sturdy framework that protects the coral and the strong pin stem and clasp which secure the jewel when worn. The backs of Brassler jewels are usually as beautifully designed as the fronts.
Hans Brassler was a jewelry designer and goldsmith who for a few years in the 1910s created a wonderful collection of imaginative jewels. His work is known for its striking originality and fine craftsmanship. The maker's mark of the Brassler workshop - "14B" inside a double oval - is stamped on the top of the safety clasp.
