Egyptian Revival Garnet Brooch
Lilies and Lotus
Lotus blossoms and lilies frame a fiery red garnet in this finely detailed Hans Brassler brooch inspired by the arts and artifacts of ancient Egypt. Brassler was an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created diminutive, finely crafted jewels that often drew inspiration from past and distant cultures. Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.
The back of a Hans Brassler jewel is often as alluring as
the front. Here Brassler has recreated the lotus and
lily blossoms of the front in dramatic low relief.
Brassler's goal was to create a jewel that was exquisitely
beautiful from every direction.
The craftsmanship employed in creating this brooch can be seen in the 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.
