Brassler Egyptian Revival Brooch

Hans Brassler Egyptian Revival brooch. (J9341)

Lilies and Lotuses

A wine-dark garnet rests amid lotuses and lilies in a brooch with an elegant hint of ancient Egypt.  This brooch was created by Hans Brassler, an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created small, exquisite jewels that often found inspiration in past and distant cultures.  It was finely crafted in 14kt gold circa 1910.

The back of a Hans Brassler brooch is often as alluring as the front.  Here Brassler has recreated the lotus and lily blossoms found on the front in striking low relief on the reverse.  Brassler's goal was to create a jewel that was beautiful from every direction.

The craftsmanship employed in creating this brooch is also evident in the sturdy safety clasp and pin stem which secure this jewel on a wearers hat, blouse or jacket.  The top of the safety clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of The Brassler Company - "14B" inside a double oval.
