Egyptian Revival Garnet Brooch

Hans Brassler Egyptian Revival brooch. (J9341)

Lilies and Lotus!


Lotus blossoms and lilies frame a fiery red garnet in this diminutive Egyptian revival brooch created by Hans Brassler.  Brassler was an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created small, exquisitely crafted jewels in 14kt gold.

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 have been beautifully repeated in low relief.  This contrasts with most brooches and pins where the back is left plain or at most brightly polished.

On a lapel or blouse, the jewel is secured with a sturdy pin stem and early safety clasp.  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company ("14B" inside a double oval) is stamped on the top of the safety clasp.

Name:  Lilies and Lotus
