Egyptian Revival Stickpin


Hans Brassler carnelian scarab stickpin. (J9234)

Carnelian Scarab!


A Hans Brassler stickpin with a sultry red carnelian scarab set in a stylized frame that repeats the scarab motif.  A wonderful blend of Egyptian Revival, Art Nouveau and Art Deco design.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

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 earned a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle.  Later he emigrated to the United States, worked with Tiffany & Company for a period and then founded his own jewelry workshop, The Brassler Company, in 1909.  Brassler was associated with the firm for six years during which time he created an extraordinary collection of strikingly original jewels.

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more beautiful stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 9/16" long and weighs 2.9 grams.  The top measures 11/16" by  1/2".

The stickpin is beautifully crafted in 14kt gold and secured with a sturdy gold pin stem.  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company, an oval cartouche enclosing "14" followed by a "B", is stamped on the lower reverse.  In the above photo, the maker's mark is partially obscured by the pin stem.
