Egyptian Revival Garnet Brooch

Hans Brassler Egyptian Revival brooch. (J9341)

Lilies and Lotus



Lotus blossoms and lilies frame a fiery red garnet in this exquisitely detailed Egyptian Revival brooch created about 1910. The brooch was created by Hans Brassler, an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created diminutive, finely crafted jewels that are uniquely his own.  The back of a Brassler jewel is often as alluring as the front.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The care Brassler took in creating a jewel can be seen on the back of this brooch where the lotuses and lilies of the front are beautifully repeated in low relief.  In contrast to most brooches and pins of the era,  Brassler strove to make each part of a jewel special and exciting.

Brassler's craftsmanship can also be seen in the early safety clasp and sturdy pin stem which securely hold this jewel on a lapel, blouse or dinner jacket.  The top of the safety clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of The Brassler Company - "14B" inside a double oval.
