Hans Brassler Roses Brooch

Hans Brassler citrine and roses brooch. (BR9349)

Roses and Citrine

A lemony yellow citrine sparkles between golden roses and bright, luminous pearls.  Around 1910 Hans Brassler created a series of gem-set brooches featuring  roses blooming on a radiating "trellis" and accented with small pearls.  This brooch is a especially cheerful example.  Created in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The reverse of this brooch is as beautifully crafted as the front.  Note the sturdiness and detail of the frame that protects the gemstones and assures the integrity of the design.  A strong pin stem with an early safety clasp secures this brooch when worn on a lapel, blouse or hat.  This jewel was designed and crafted to survive its next 100 years as ably as it has its first.

Hans Brassler was an imaginative designer, jeweler and artist who in the early 1900s created a small collection of gem-set brooches with roses gracing a trellis of knife-edge wires accented with small pearls.  Brassler's work is striking in its originality and for his uncompromising commitment to fine craftsmanship.  The maker's mark of Hans Brassler - "14B" inside a double oval - is stamped on the lobe beneath the lower pearl.
