The reverse of the brooch is beautifully crafted.  Note the sturdy framework that supports the gems and assures the integrity of the design.  A sturdy pin stem and transitional safety clasp help secure the brooch when worn on a lapel or blouse.

Hans Brassler was one of the more imaginative jewelers of the early 1900s.  Born in Germany, he studied at the Academie Julian in Paris and is reported to have earned a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle.  Later he worked with Tiffany & Company prior to founding in 1909 his own firm, The Brassler Company.  Located in Newark, New Jersey, Brassler was with the firm for about six years during which time he created an extraordinary collection of strikingly original jewels.

The lower reverse of the brooch is stamped with the maker's
mark of The Brassler Co - "14B" inside a double oval.
