Brassler Lapis Lazuli Stickpin
The Night Beetle
| A deep blue lapis lazuli set as the body of an
exotic scarab or moth with golden wings tightly folded along its
sides. In the lapis golden flecks of pyrite glitter like
stars in the night sky. Created by Hans Brassler in 14kt
gold, circa 1910.
Hans Brassler was an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s wedded elements of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Gothic design to create fantastic, often zoomorphic stickpins and other jewels. This elegant stickpin is a striking example of Brassler's work.
The stickpin is beautifully crafted with a sturdy gold pin stem to secure the jewel on a lapel or scarf. The maker's mark of The Brassler Company, a double oval surrounding "14B" is stamped on the lower reverse behind the pin stem.
