Hans Brassler Stickpin

Pearl Geometry

A luminous pearl floats above radiating concentric triangles.  A geometrically striking stickpin created by Hans Brassler in the early Art Deco taste.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was an imaginative jeweler working in the early 1900s who found design influences in a wide variety of cultures and periods.  He often combined elements and motifs from different periods and styles.  This striking stickpin reflects influences from the German Jugendstil, the British Arts & Crafts movement and early Art Deco.  Rounded concentric triangles were one of Brassler's signature designs.

The stickpin is beautifully crafted with a solid gold back and sturdy gold pin stem. (see photo below)  The maker's mark of the Brassler workshop, an oval enclosing "14B", is stamped on the side of the upper pin stem.

Cost:  $475

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